CRM on Twitter: May 2009
For the rest of the May 2009 issue of CRM magazine, please click here.
Retailers have certainly had a rough go of it, to say the least (see this month’s cover story, “Selling Out”). With that in mind, we thought we’d take a look at how a handful of them have fared in the twitterverse. As for us, CRM magazine’s now at www.twitter.com/CRM and you can find our live-twittering and blogposts at www.twitter.com/destinationCRM.
We’ll be monitoring both, of course, but to reach us directly, start your tweet with @CRM.
