In some ways this Twitter Era can be good for your restaurant’s business. With a dash of wit, and a stylized photo of your best summer dish—glorious #duck with crispy fatty skin—you might just reach the foodie scene. Twitter is primarily known as a social network for sharing thoughts and ideas through 280-character posts (formerly 140 characters). Twitter is more conversational than other platforms, and you can use Twitter to connect with people privately or even to lasso a large group for an explosive conversation about food trends or the pure awesomeness of your restaurant. Altogether, the features of Twitter can be used to play an important role in your restaurant’s marketing plans.
What can Twitter do for marketing your restaurant? With Twitter, you can connect with customers as well as with your local and global communities. Twitter can be used to attract new customers and turn one-time guests into repeat diners, too. Update your Twitter account whenever your restaurant is featuring an exciting special or too-good-to-miss promotion and get the word out. There are a number of ways that Twitter can help you to build buzz around your restaurant.
