Last week, CommonPlaces helped organize a Twitter networking event at Endicott College in Beverly, Massachusetts. The event was called The Big Tweet, and our CEO Ben Bassi spoke briefly to the group of 350 about how businesses are using Twitter today to drive traffic, increase sales, and grow their business.
