I created a Twitter account for Ambergris Today at the time when it started to become popular in the US. San Pedro had already started to get into Facebook and that was the talk of the town. “Do you have a Facebook account?” was always part of a normal conversation. But Twitter never really picked up for a while, mostly because it was more of a mobile app and Belize had not gotten into the whole smart phone thing.
But recently Twitter has been picking up and every day I see new followers on Ambergris Today Twitter Page. Smart phones are everywhere and more people are embracing the internet like never before. Facebook and Twitter and other social media have become such an asset to businesses all over and everybody is embracing it as a part of their marketing.
