Millions of Internet users have fallen in love with the Twitter "microblogging" service, which lets them swap brief text "tweets." Now companies are embracing the service to engage customers, promote products and monitor what is being said about their brands.

Given the passion and high profiles of "Twitterverse" denizens, the service has evolved into a vital early-warning system for businesses seeking to stave off criticism, and as a way to build better relationships with customers. That is why companies need to know Twitter. Embracing it can help a business thrive; ignoring the service could well hurt it.

The author of the book "Twitter Mean Business" Julio Ojeda-Zapata asked Jennifer Leggio to write the foreword because of her extensive use and knowledge of Twitter. For companies and individuals unfamiliar with Twitter, Jennifer is a great resource to learn from. She will address a ton of questions and make sure you will take away the following:

A better understanding on how Twitter works
How Microblogging and Twitter is changing the face of business
Having a firm grasp on how Twitter can change your corporate brand
Having a firm grasp on how Twitter can change your personal brand
How to measure the success of your time on Twitter

After you leave the event, you will have Julio's book to read to continue your path of knowledge with Twitter. This will be an evening you can't miss.
