Sound Off: Is Twitter a Waste?
Readers react to John J. Bowen Jr.’s September column on social media:
“Bowen says he doesn’t see ‘much professional value’
in Twitter. How do you define value? Prospecting for
clients, building upon client relationships, streamlining a flow of information, marketing your skills
and improving your knowledge of the profession are
all things a financial planner can do on Twitter.”
