24 Cool Twitter Pages…and How to Rock Your Own!

Twitter’s limited customisation abilities are a good thing, many would say, and lagging traffic numbers on sites that allow free-for-all customisation (such as MySpace) might just support that belief.  In any case, Twitter does require Tweeters to think outside the box if they want to stand out.  And just as with everything you do with your business, it’s important to make an impression.
