Many of their tweets leap off their facebook posts - like this one:



One glitch though we that we noticed in some of their posts is that, they just give the links and don't say anything about it. This may not be a nice idea on twitter!







@Hillarysalon - 39* Followers

Interesting news around the business establishment is always a great way to
engage with your customers. Although in twitter numbers, 39 seems like a small number we feel that this salon will grow fast!




@superstartans - 525* Followers

With a steady flow of specials, offers & replies this Las Vegas Super Star tanning salon is the top individual Spa & Salon on twitter. Like Hypnotic Salon, many of their posts springboard off Facebook.
