Smart Partners with Twitter For Better Customer Service

Twitter is introducing enhanced customer support features to help businesses globally provide even better customer service on the platform. Businesses can now indicate that they provide support, which adds that information to suggestions when people search for a business, mention a business in a Tweet, or find a business in Direct Messages.


Additionally, businesses can display hours of availability on their profile to help set people’s expectations for when they are likely to reply. These businesses’ profiles will also display a more prominent button to start a Direct Message so people know the business offers support privately. Smart is is among the first in Southeast Asia to leverage the new support features for better customer service.  



The latest enhancements complement previously announced improvements for customer service, including Direct Message links and Customer Feedback cards to help businesses provide better service on Twitter.

“Our followers used to go through multiple stages just to reach out to us, but Twitter’s Customer Service has allowed us to streamline our process and consequently increase our engagement with our beloved customers. Over the trial period alone, we saw a 32% increase in direct messages, which allow us to handle the concerns of our customers efficiently and get their feedback so we can continuously improve our service,” said Raymund A. Rivadelo, Vice President and Head of Customer Care, SMART Philippines.

Getting started

These features can be activated on a new Customer support settings page on the Twitter Dashboard website. Businesses are required to first enable the setting to receive Direct Messages from anyone. This allows users a choice to communicate about support issues via Tweets or Direct Messages, since support  issues may require sharing personal information or longer descriptions of issues.
