Today, it's grown to become a world-wide means of instant communication to anyone and everyone. Businesses utilize Twitter as a direct form of contact with their customers, allowing the businesses to address customer concerns in an open forum and stay in touch in real time.

    In January 2009, Bank of America joined Twitter so we could communicate instantly and directly with our customers to resolve problems, address concerns, and share information. The typical Twitter starter question is, "What are you doing?" However, we seek out users who express they have a problem and ask, "Is there anything I can do to help?" We're here to help, listen and learn from our customers — to continuously make banking easier, faster and more convenient.

    In addition to our customer service @BofA_Help identity, Bank of America created a second Twitter persona, @BofA_Careers, in 2010. Through @BofA_Careers, interested individuals can receive information about newly posted job openings with Bank of America.
