Digital Buzz – Avoiding Twitter Trolls with Automated Verification!

It can be difficult to keep up with all of the technological advances happening in our world – there’s always so much going on! As part of our weekly blog, SponsoredLinX take a look at some of the biggest social media news announcements to have caught our eye during August. 
Twitter launches Automated Verification for brands

Twitter is making it easier than ever for brands to get the coveted little blue badge of approval. With their new Automated Verification process, companies can help to secure their brand against fake troll accounts, making it easier for customers to spot the authentic profile.
