Twellowhood = Twitter Marketing Goldmine

Picture 1In the midst of developing a social media campaign for a client, I came across this very helpful site called Twellow, the Twitter Yellow Pages.

Twellow is great for a couple of reasons.  One, if you already know your targeted audience demographic, you can go to Twellowhood and find all of the people in that state (which is further broken down by city) that have twitter profiles.  Twellowhood provides you with their bio and the amount of followers they have.  Two, Twellow cuts the time it takes to search for your audience via Twitter in half.

Go on, you know you want to see what Twellow is all about, just click the link above.  Don’t forget to come back and let me know your thoughts.
