According to the broadband comparison website, ISPs including BT,PlusNet , TalkTalkand Be are currently posting up to 100 tweets a day in response to customers queries and problems.

Oli White, head of marketing at Be Broadband, said: “The most important use of Twitter is to open another communication channel between Be and its members, which is why we’ve linked our team on Twitter directly into our customer services.

“Twitter is a channel that’s been adopted by a number of our members so it became pretty clear that it was a sensible thing for us to bring in to our business as usual because it’s how they wanted to communicate.”
