Twitter. A feature test with businesses

Twitter is beta testing a new feature called 'Contributors'.

The feature appends the contributor's username to the tweet byline, making the business to consumer communication more personal; e.g. if @Twitter invites @Biz to tweet on its behalf, then a tweet from @Twitter would include @Biz in the byline so that users know more about the real people behind organizations.quotesmarksleft.jpg
