Chief Marketing Officers often tend to be some of the most followed people on Twitter. They can be seen promoting their much-loved brands as well as engaging with customers and potential leads.
As a result, social media has become one of the biggest marketing tools available. It has become easier than ever to share your brand story with 1000s of people around the world.
Having a character limit may seem restrictive, but the best CMOs can work around it. They are the ones who can turn 280 characters into a compelling short story that you cannot help but retweet and share with your followers.
