Twitter is continuing to develop features for professionals. After testing with early users last year, Location Spotlight is now available to anyone with a Professional Twitter account. It allows businesses and individuals to show useful location and contact information at the top of their profile, in a similar way to Google Business Profile.

You’ll be able to display:

  • Website
  • Business address
  • Hours of operation
  • Email
  • Phone

In addition, Twitter has integrated Google Maps so you have the option to add a map showing the precise location of your business. Customers can click to get directions.

Many businesses and professionals have a strong Twitter presence and use it to engage with customers and build community. This is a useful feature which makes it easy for people to reach or find you via other means.

Twitter has a range of features in the pipeline for professional accounts, including:

  • A centralised resource hub for professionals
  • More profile Spotlights
  • Monthly live online workshops
  • TweetLikeAPro on-demand courses

Anyone with a professional or business status can apply to convert their account to a Professional Twitter account.
