I am on Twitter almost everyday. I've found that it's a great way to save money, here's how!
1. SEARCH FOR DEALS AND DISCOUNTS
Before you buy anything online, make it a habit to first search on Twitter for coupon codes for the product or service you are about to order. Use the Twitter Search page or search field on your browser or smartphone app to do some basic deal sleuthing.Keep an Eye on Giveaways
Twitter has become the new way of finding freebies. Here are some of our favorites:

Use Hashtags to Find Deals
#deals, #freebies, #coupons are examples of some hashtags that can point you to savings. Remember that companies often release on holidays and special days.2. USE TWITTER FOR BETTER CUSTOMER SERVICE
If you mail a letter or send an email to a company to file a complaint or request help, only the company's customer care department knows about your pain. But when you share your problem on Twitter, you are increasing the number of people who are aware of the issue. Publicly shaming a company on Twitter can be a useful tactic to get your voice heard. Here are some things to consider before sending off your tweet:
Avoid tweeting when you are upset.
Focus on facts. You want your tweet to have the potential for going viral for the right reasons.
Follow the company so that its reps can private message you.
If the company does not contact you within 48 hours, send a reminder tweet that it still has not replied to your original tweet
