Marketing your business on Twitter is all about engaging with your customers or target audience. Use the search feature on Twitter to find out what people are saying about your brand and products.
If someone tweets something nice about your company, reply with a tweet acknowledging them. In the same way, if someone tweets a complaint at your brand, apologize publicly and tweet at them once the issue has been fixed.
