You can put you logo, website and contact details. Use the Bio sections as an elevator pitch. You can also get a tagline of your company and links to your website, blog etc in this section. Once you’ve your profile all set up, integrate it with your website, Facebook page, Blog etc.
2. Listen and Monitor Once you are on Twitter, the first step should be to listen before you start joining the conversations.

Reputation Management: Follow up and act immediately in case of a negative tweet. Answer Questions: Treat it as an instant customer care service that can really strengthen your brand.
3. Develop Relationships Join in the relevant conversations and be chatty. Instead of just posting links on Twitter, try to interact with your followers as well. Develop a nice mix of what you would like to tweet about. Industry trends, market news will attract relevant people. Tweet 3-5 times a day but make sure to keep your posts interesting and relevant to your target audience. Follow influencers and try to get them say good things about your brand. You can look for influencers in your field through Tweet Grader.
4. Retweet and Favourite Tweets Retweet (RT) your followers’ tweets. And if someone else retweets your tweet, make it a point to thank them for it. Make it a point to RT any tweet which is positive about your company: That way more people will get to see what good things are being said about you. Also, remember to “Favourite” all the positive reviews you get. Gradually you’ll develop a good list of positive tweets in your Favourite tab.
