There’s no doubt that Twitter is increasingly finding its way into the business arsenal, and Forkliftaction.com has been active in that medium for some time. We are now asking all suppliers and vendors out there to get onboard with us by linking their local promotional activities under our global umbrella. Simply add the tag #ForkliftsGoGlobal to your tweets to join in. There’s no cost and you don’t have to be an advertiser to participate. The advertisement does, however, have to be for a forklift.
So, please join us on Twitter whether you’re an end-user or a vendor.
