@spotonpr on Twitter
Spot On PR joined Twitter in 2008 and has been addicted to the fast moving micro-blogging platform ever since. Our tweets are mostly about media, marketing, technology and arts in the Arab world including news about media, journalism, PR, advertising, marketing, social media mobile, Internet, start-ups, art, culture and film. We also have a keen interest in freedom of expression, press freedom and net neutrality.
Our business is quite focused on the Arab world and so most of our content is specific to the Middle East and North Africa. We’re generally interested in what marketing and media people are doing around the Middle East and so are many of our followers, so we share news, information and tips.
If you’re trying to get the most out of Twitter, you might like these Twitter resources, particularly if your located in or interested in the Middle East and North Africa. You should also look through our MENA Twitter Lists to see who’s doing what on Twitter and ideas on Twitter users to follow.
