You found out that your competitors are now on Facebook(or Twitter, or Google+). You immediately create a profile page for your business there and follow certain people and drop a few links. And yet you don't get the required hits on your website. Worse, there isn't anyone to click on your promotional links. What is going wrong here? You were supposed to get additional traffic too?

Which Brands Rule Twitter?

Twitter has been a great place for brands to get in touch with the people who matter most - customers! You may have come across those brands too, may be even hired their services or bought their products. SocialFresh carried out an extensive research and finalized the best brands on Twitter. 

What attracted me to the race was that the ones with a lot of followers didn't win the top slot but the ones who were engaging. Those brands won who made sure that their customers were delighted by having them on their timeline! There are no Top 10 Brands, instead we have 12 with 5 Brands tied for No.8 Spot!
