First and only newswire service in Canada to offer Twitter integration
TORONTO, April 13, 2012 /CNW/ - For those who felt they needed a voice after seeing a news release, photo or video, CNW has enabled "Tweets" in its comments section so that opinions can be expressed and read globally.
"We really wanted to make sure that our comments section was more inclusive," says Tim Griffin, Vice-Present of Product Management for CNW Group. "Because 'Tweets' are such a popular form of online communication, it was important that we found a way to incorporate that."
Twitter integration allows CNW, on behalf of its clients, to capture customer sentiment and feedback, brand and market awareness, and potential marketing opportunities. Additionally, it allows companies to engage with their customers by assigning hashtags to their stories and to view the comments at newswire.ca
"It's win-win," says Griffin. "This offers audiences one more avenue to express themselves about subjects that matter to them. The real-time feedback is valuable to anyone who's gauging the online reach of their message."
