Twitter for Accountants
Unlike Facebook, Twitter is both broadly accepted and widely used by many professionals including accountants. It’s a proven way for accountants to broadcast the services of their practice. In our view, Twitter is one the best examples of a free social networking service that allows users to send information through “tweets” to its followers. Every Twitter subscriber has a profile page where they can post any information they feel is relevant to the followers of their page. Every time you post a “tweet” your followers are automatically updated.
Twitter from mobiles and smart phones
Twitter has the ability to access your account from your mobile phone or smart phone. This means that you have access to this powerful communication tool wherever you and your phone are. This amazing flexibility means that you can “tweet” to all your clients and potential clients any time you wish, from anywhere, for free, in real time. No need for complicated techies or IT gurus. Twitter puts the power right at your fingertips and it costs you nothing. As with anything new it can take a little time to think through what you might like to “tweet” about but once you start it will become second nature before too long. Some accountants send a “tweet” to clients reminding them of a tax due date or a budget update or important news. Others have “Tweeted” about their views on the current climate, the markets and even the Eurozone crisis. Twitter has enabled them to share their thoughts with all their followers in just a few lines on the mobile or on the website.
