Twitter Rolls Out New Location Spotlight Feature

Twitter has just introduced a new Location Spotlight feature, that makes it easier for customers to grab directions via Google Maps and chat with businesses via Direct Messages.


According to the social media network, any professional around the world can add a Location Spotlight to their profile to help customers find their biz location and get in touch faster.

The feature allows people with physical business locations to display their business address, hours of operation, and additional contact information so that customers can reach them via phone, text, email, or DMs.

Using Google Maps Platform, this spotlight now gives professionals the option to add a map of their business location. Customers can then click on the map for directions to navigate there.
