A recent Big Leap blog post, The Growing Effect of Social Media on Marketing, highlighted a fundamental characteristic of social media: interactivity. As much more than a platform for just photos, videos, or posts – social media is a network of webpages that allow users to interact with each other through conversation, sharing, tagging, reposting and more. Social media brings internet users together in a unique and unprecedented way.

Now nearly a decade old, Twitter embodies the most significant qualities of a social media platform: creating real-time, two-way engagement. In addition, Social Media Today deemed Twitter “the most important social media site in 2015” because of its user-friendly features. Simply put, Twitter is useful AND fun to use.

With messages limited to 140 characters, Twitter allows just enough space for users to post a link, share an image, exchange banter, and much more. These short bursts of information are ideal for relaying quick messages in our fast-paced, short-attention span society.

For advertising agencies, Twitter is among the most powerful and beneficial marketing channels. With Twitter, an ad agency can build an ever-present online identity that allows them to connect with a broad target audience.

However, effectively using Twitter as a marketing tool is no easy task. If you’re looking for those rare examples of businesses making the most of social media, then look no further than these ten Arizona ad agencies that are doing Twitter right.
