There’s good news for businesses who use Twitter, the social media platform is testing a new Community showcase option for professional profiles. The app is aiming to encourage brands and creators to build more communities on the platform and the new Communities option will enable them to display a chosen community at the forefront of their Twitter profile.
Enhancing your Twitter performance and presence through Communities
The new Communities enhancement will guide your audience to join a topic-aligned Twitter discussion, enabling businesses to highlight a specific service or product within the discussion. This will help towards building brand awareness and reaching a wider audience on your professional profile.
What are Twitter’s Professional Profiles?
Twitter’s Professional Profiles are available to all users, meaning any business can have a designated professional Twitter profile for their business. The new Communities option will provide a range of additional profile display options, including business categories, location listing, and additional contact information options.
Other additional display elements are also being developed. These include a custom ‘link’ display option, which will enable you to choose from your desired ‘call to action’ pre-set. This will then be displayed in a prominent button on your profile page, encouraging followers to get in touch more easily.
Focusing on your Twitter presence
Twitter has been working hard to ensure businesses are focusing on their Twitter presence, with this new update for Communities being just one example. The channel has been building out its professional account options, with the hope that it will encourage businesses to be more active on the micro-blogging platform and able to connect with their target audience with more ease. The new community display on professional profiles would also help Twitter promote its Communities option as a means of connection between a business and its audience. This in turn, will help towards building a more focused, engaged audience in the app.
