Twitter for Business

twitterbirdTwitter is preparing to offer special paid services for businesses. The micro-blogging site has just posted Twitter 101, a series of Web pages and a downloadable slide show that explain what Twitter is and how businesses can use it.

There are also case studies of a few companies that use Twitter. The case studies include JetBlue and Dell and small businesses like Teusner Wines and CoffeeGroundz.

Twitter markets the service to businesses for its value to building relationships and listening to and responding to comments about your company. It is also a way to ask questions and float ideas in real time, the company says.
