Adding to its growing social media platform, Overdrive has joined the Twitter revolution, amassing hundreds of followers along the way. The online marketing agency is leveraging the social media tool to communicate with its clients and fellow marketers, providing online marketing industry updates and sharing invaluable marketing insights.
The award-winning agency behind highly successful social, search and online media campaigns for leading companies such as Harley-Davidson and The Princeton Review, Overdrive Interactive communicates and socializes as a company regularly via Facebook, MySpace and YouTube, in addition to Twitter.
“We have seen an explosion in the use of Twitter in the past year,” said Harry Gold, CEO of Overdrive Interactive. “It is a highly effective way to start conversations with and get feedback from your followers by sending them short bursts of information. It is easy to see why people love this new tool – it is concise but engaging.” He added, “Its potential for companies to grow their businesses is huge!”
Twitter is a free social networking and micro-blogging service that enables users to send (known as “tweet”) and receive other users’ updates of 140 characters or fewer. According to Internet researcher ComScore Inc., global visitors to Twitter were 5.57 million in September 2008, a five-fold increase from September 2007.
