"Twitter has changed the way people around the world communicate and interact with brands," said Marcel LeBrun, senior vice president and general manager of Salesforce Radian6, in a statement. "The alliance between Twitter and salesforce.com enables companies to apply the power of social listening and engagement to over 400 million Tweets daily, providing opportunities for social enterprises to engage, solve problems, gain followers, and build brand identity."
