Is My Twitter Profile Secure?

Twitter is a very personal social media platform and with modern inventions such as smartphones, you are nearly always connected to the internet and these networks. As such, you can use Twitter – or “tweet” –  as regularly as you like.  With constant tweeting and success, you can build up a reputable following.

Yet, once you gain this following, you should be concerned about how secure your Twitter profile is.  It is, after all, one of the your most direct and important communication channels to your audience.  Whether it’s for personal use or for representing a larger company or organization, your Twitter account needs to be secure.

From my view, there is a lot of sharing and content marketing going on on Google+. However, it seems it still can’t compete with Facebook. But, then, many of us have become so attached to our Facebook that there is a question of how we existed before Facebook.

It would be interesting to me, to see if these numbers ring true, say, a year from now. In the meantime, check out the details of this study here: Google Plus Ghost Town? G+ Social Shares Lowest Compared to Facebook, Twitter And Even LinkedIn
