At this stage in the digital game, many brands are well aware that they cannot afford not to address customer service issues that arise on Twitter. Word travels fast on Twitter, so top brands are improving their customer service by responding via social networks.
Last year, we published two studies on customer service on Twitter and found that 32% of the Interbrand 100 companies were using dedicated customer service handles. This year, we revisited the list to measure the change in customer service handle adoption and engagement. Turns out, the same brands are using this tactic, but they’re investing more in the resource, and seeing results. Should your brand be using a dedicated customer service handle? Take a look at the study and Tweet a few of our findings!
