If you’re not a Twitter user, you should be. CRE tech startups are changing the industry, and one of their favorite platforms is Twitter. When Twitter officially entered the market back in October 2007, Jack Dorsey, Evan Williams, and Biz Stone, along with some members from Odeo, had a vision they wanted to share with the world. They formed Obvious Corporation, bought out Odeo, and the tweets started flying.
Their ingenious marketing plan began with streaming messages on massive plasma television screens at the trendy South by Southwest Festival. The result was that Twitter usage went from just 20,000 tweets per day to over 60,000 and it won a prestigious award. Of course, Jack Dorsey tweeted out his gratitude in less than 140 characters. Now with about 326 million monthly active users, it’s one of the biggest social media platforms on the market. These are nine CRE tech startups we’re following on Twitter.
