Twitter for Business Rule:
Develop a consistent online presence on 1 additional social media channel.
Invite your Twitter followers to connect with you on that platform.

Connecting on multiple platforms creates a deeper synergy between your ideas & audience

Great question :-)

Each platform has it's own "voice" due to the "culture" of that platform. On Twitter you deliver short, value driven messages that you can expand on other social channels.
