    I think twitter is a better option for business person and regular social media freak. What do you think?
    SEMrush
    Twitter, post show up on search engines, the only flaw is limited to text
    Cant figure why instagram has taken over?

    I also get more traffic from Twitter (and from Facebook too).

    It depends on the traffic you're after.

    Met a woman who sells a food range and her husband is a film maker so she has stunning food prep videos and instagram is perfect for her
    My daughter follows the "beauty gurus" mostly through youtube but she also follows them on instagram - again, it's a visual product
    I'm more into politics and tech and more headline focussed - I don't want to watch minutes of video to get a short message so twitter works better for me

    Like Sarah said it would depend on the niche. I can see how Instagram would be effective in the fashion industry, for example.

    I think it depends on the niche you are in and the market you are targeting. As for me, Instagram delivers better results than Twitter.

    Depends on your niche. But if you can, go for both :)

    I feel there is a place for every social media platform in your marketing strategy because they each meet different needs.
    Personally I like Twitter much better.
    However so many people are on Instagram it can't be ignored as a place to grow an audience & drive traffic.

    Instagram is just Twitter for people who do not want to read.

    And Instagram is all about images while Twitter is very powerful tool you can share anything from images to videos, text and links + you will surely find out people with similar niche. Lastly, I will highly recommend you to use Twitter :)

    Business with twitter is easy but I don't think we can do that with Instagram.

    If you starting now definitely Instagram is more popular right now but twitter is very good as well
    I personally have an Instagram page where I run my business with and I have about 10000 followers so is great

    Twitter is ruined thanks to a lot of bots on there. People starting now can hardly find real people to target.

    the importance of twitter can't be compared with Instagram when it comes to promoting your business. That's why you find many articles on the importance of twitter but few on Instagram. i have generated traffic on my blogs too through twitter.

    I think more than 60% users of Twitter do not open the links in the tweets. Users pay attention to the text itself.

    It would be depend on your content / products. If you have products related women than Instagram is better but twitter is best for all kinds of business.

    It depends on the niche. Try to focus what is your target and try to choose. If your business is photogenic, maybe it sounds weird but if you have a restaurant - instagram is better than twitter, but if you have a blog or something where is a lot of text content you should try focus on twitter. If your target is around teenagers maybe the best way will be instagram and so on.
