Twitter introduced a new tool that will allow businesses to display their location on Google Maps as part of their personal bio.. The new feature called Location Spotlight was launched this Friday worldwide for those users with business accounts.

With this new feature businesses will also be able to add information to their profiles regarding business hours, a button to quickly contact them via direct message or callas well as directions to get to the store.

The idea behind Location Spotlight is to make it easier for customers to locate the stores they want to go shopping at, as well as to know if they are working or not. At the same time, it improves the ability of businesses to attract new customers through their social networks, something that has become a constant throughout the world after the pandemic.

The launch of this feature is part of Twitter’s efforts to offer a greater number of tools to businesses that use its platform to reach their customers.. Among them is the recent launch of a section that will allow brands to sell their products directly from Twitter, without the need for the user to be redirected to another web page.

How to activate Location Spotlight on a Twitter account?

The process to start using the new Twitter feature is extremely easy. The main requirement to be able to activate the function is that it is essential that this be done from a professional account.
