Brian Fanzo: Your Brand Needs Twitter in 2018

Ross Brand with your Livestream Universe Update and Flash Briefing for Tuesday, April 24th, 2018. 

If you’re a live streamer who primarily uses Facebook, Instagram or YouTube to go live, what role does Twitter play in your social media activities?

While some people are spending less time on the platform and others primarily automating their involvement, Brian Fanzo says the real-time conversations on Twitter shouldn’t be overlooked by entrepreneurs and brands.

Twitter also helps you reach people outside your network.

Madalyn Sklar also makes Twitter and live streaming important elements of her social media outreach. Following her #TwitterSmarter and #SocialROI chats, Madalyn continues the conversation on Facebook Live.
