Hootsuite There has been big business successes... Such as DELL who made $3m from Twitter related sales in 2009 But small to medium sized businesses have flourished using Twitter too! @Love_Cakes "To be honest I was very skeptical at first - I couldn’t see any business benefit." "Everytime we post on our Twitter account we make money!" @filmextras “We have had a few orders from Twitter, where someone has asked for business data or contact names and this has been forwarded by a friend – adding my Twitter name to the end to alert me to the enquiry. It is then up to me to follow up, although I truly believe without a presence, these would be lost opportunities.” @BDPs "Actually, we've had quite a lot of business from it."

Swearing - Does it give off the right impression of your business? Keywords - Try to use them in your tweets.
