"How tweet it is" - Amigo on Twitter

In the recent article "How tweet it is: Local businesses use Twitter to connect with customers" in the Saginaw News, Amigo Mobility was featured along with other local businesses that use Twitter such as Bronner's, Bavarian Inn and Magic Bean Cafe. 

I was happy to be part of the article; I've been tweeting since May 2009, focusing on topics such as mobility, health and disability awareness. I enjoy sharing stories of our customers on Twitter as well as what's new at Amigo. 

Read a portion of the article here:

In the five years since the first tweet was sent on the message system Twitter, businesses in the Great Lakes Bay Region have caught on to the service’s appeal.

For Amigo’s 1,013 followers, Jennifer Kehres recently sent a link to a video of Amigo owner Ron Bachman rallying fifth- through eighth-grade students in Virginia against bullying.

“Twitter, for me, has made the world a smaller place,” Kehres said. “It allows us to connect with people who we normally wouldn’t have access to.”

Jennifer Kehres said she has used Twitter to find guests to write on the Amigo blog, for harvesting questions and ideas for the company’s e-newsletter and to build relationships with other businesses.
