There are several Twitter buttons you can have on your site, including a follow and tweet button. Now, however, Twitter has launched a feature that enables people to start a Direct Message conversation directly from your website.

Twitter appear to be, erm, “catching up” with Facebook on the business communication scene – which I imagine is useful today as social media rises.
Personally, using social media for business inquiries isn’t something I opt for yet, as those accounts are generally only run by a marketing department who redirect you to e-mail, anyway. Although for a business to incorporate this button should mean you will be speaking to the correct people. It will be interesting to see if this takes off!
