In June, Twitter began rolling out a useful new feature called “Location Spotlight” for a limited number of professional accounts.
The new feature added by Twitter in June, is called ” Location Spotlight “, and has been implemented for some professional accounts, so that they could have location and contact information on their profile, and now, Twitter now allows any account company to use the new function.
As reported by TechCrunch , Location Spotlight was only available to users based in the US, UK, Canada and Australia but from now on, the feature will arrive for all corporate accounts worldwide. Twitter said these options aim to make it easier for consumers to reach businesses directly from the social network.
Regular Twitter users can only add a URL and short location to a profile , however, with Location Spotlight, Twitter expands these options with phone number, email, and full address. With a simple tap, a user visiting a professional Twitter profile can call or text that business, or even see its exact location on a map.
This extra information is displayed just below the profile bio, in addition, Twitter has anticipated some other new features coming to professional accounts, including a “Professional Home” which will work as a hub to show stats on a business profile and this feature it should be released in the coming weeks.
