What happens when you tweet at a company, asking for help with their product?
What’s been your experience with mentioning or tagging someone with a large following, looking to connect or engage?

Twitter’s much younger cousin Instagram even surpassed its monthly active user count when it hit 300 million monthly active users back in January.
