Need a better way to manage your Twitter account and analytics?

Twitter Dashboard offers one place to get everything done.

For businesses, Twitter is an advocate for conversation, sharing news, and authentic interaction. With Dashboard, you can easily keep up with these kinds of connections more effectively and use the analytics provided to better optimize your Twitter marketing.

Here's how it works:

Getting Started

The first step is to log into your Twitter account at the Dashboard page. You will be prompted to describe your business and choose how many employees you have.

Next, create a custom feed to find out what's being said about your business. There will be an option to add keywords, phrases, and hashtags that are connected to your business, so that you're not just seeing who mentions your account handle. ___

Better Engage With Your Audience

Dashboard helps you monitor and respond faster to the tweets that matter most. View every tweet that mentions your Twitter handle, company name, or website, by clicking the About You tab on Dashboard. Use your custom feed to engage more with your followers for conversation starters and highlight your best content for retweets. For example, in your custom feed, you may see a question about your operating hours or, a tweet about a potential customer talking about your product. This way, you can easily interact and begin a conversation with those people. ___

Schedule Your Tweets

Stay ahead of the game by scheduling tweets directly through Twitter Dashboard. Now, you'll get a simpler interface to reach your audience every day, without having to go back and forth between your third-party scheduling tools.
