  9. 9. What do we say? •  These 2 steps that Twitter has taken suggests it wants to become more mainstream: the aim of the new features is to encourage wider use, whilst the implementation of distinct pages for brands will draw attention to the space as fundamental, such as Facebook and Google+ already have. •  Twitter was once a key space for brands to listen and respond to customers. Now, however, the focus has broadened and Twitter has recognised the importance of making this easier for brands. •  Brands will have to step up and the creation of an engaging content strategy for Twitter is highly important to engage with this potential new audience.Page 9 | Guide to new Twitter for brands| Dec 2011
