  1. Link Backs: Twitter will provide you a link-back to your e-commerce web site. This will increase your Google site ranking.
  2. Advertising: The twitter application on allows publishing of up to 140 words at a time. Can you describe your product or service and include a URL with 140 words or less? I hope you can.
  3. Social Networking: Do not think of social networking as a group of people engaging in idol chat. You need to view it as a method for your customers and vendors to contact your business and vice-versa.
  4. Customer Service: Twitter provides your customers another method for contacting your business.

What generation do you think is driving Internet sales? I can assure you it is the generation using Social Networking and SMS.

Hope this provides a better understanding of how Twitter can be used to benefit your business.
