All businesses worldwide now have access to a new tool that allows them to display their location address, business hours, and other contact information on their Twitter profiles.
Earlier, users in the US, UK, Canada, and Australia could access the “Location Spotlight” function.
To support budding entrepreneurs on its platform, Twitter is also introducing a new monthly live series called “Taking Care of Business.”
“We are proud of the foundation we’ve laid with the initial suite of products we’ve unveiled to date and we’re excited to continue introducing new ways to help professionals achieve business success on Twitter,” it said in a statement.
The “Location Spotlight” function enables brick-and-mortar store professional accounts to display information on their profiles.
Visitors to a company’s profile can view the updated details.
By tapping the location, a mapping app like Google Maps can provide driving instructions to the store.
Professional Accounts allow businesses, brands, creators, and publishers to “have a unique and clearly defined presence on the platform and the ability to grow and strengthen their presence on Twitter”.
Additionally, the features can be customized by the businesses to show the days and hours they want customers to visit their location.
