FORTUNE 100 Best Companies To Work For And Their Twitter Status

Thursday, February 19th, 2009

100 best fortune FORTUNE 100 Best Companies To Work For And Their Twitter StatusI was very disappointed with this list. I would have thought that more of these companies would have by now had a Twitter presence, but I was sadly mistaken.

Only 25 of the 100 companies had a Twitter status. I was most impressed with Zappos (@zappos) with over 90K+ followers and I was least impressed with Stew Leonard’s @stewleonards at only having 5 followers. Stew Leonard’s should really take a look at what Whole Foods (@wholefoods) is doing on Twitter.

Three companies that I feel are really missing the boat on not being on Twitter are eBay, Fedex and T-mobile. All of these companies should follow Comcast (@comcastcares) for its great customer service via Twitter.

Of all the 100 companies listed I would definitely consider working for Zappos. Not only have they taken their Twitter status to the next level with http://twitter.zappos.com/ but they really get what most of us are looking for in a laid back and fun working environment.

Check out the video Fortune created about Zappos
http://money.cnn.com/video/ft/#/video/fortune/2009/01/21/fortune.bctwf.zappos.fortune

Please let me know if you find anymore of these companies on Twitter. Just shoot me a reply or DM @twarketing

All the best
