Memorable Tweets of 2012

Some have described Twitter as the water cooler of the social age. It’s the place to discuss current events in real time, build brand awareness, promote contests, etc. But no matter why your business uses Twitter or why you as an individual may use Twitter, every now and then, a tweet stands out. Here are the 20 tweets regarding marketing, social media, and leadership that caught my attention during 2012.
