I found this article interesting.
I know Tiannas has a Twitter feed. I have followed a couple of other Montreal escort ones, including XXXtase's that seems to not be regularly updated, but I have not found as many Montreal sex workers to advertise on Twitter as the upper-end U.S. sex workers. Perhaps it is because merb is such a great resource for daily advertisements. But some independent sex workers (and agencies) in the U.S. use it to provide a constant stream of pictures and interaction with customers - including tweeting about topics other than sex work.
More and more agencies and indies are adopting Twitter in Toronto - with a content stream of picture, or candid comments. I know that some indies just rely on it.
In Montreal, some of the Indy Companions make good use of it, in addition to Tianna. Of the top of my head: Camille Haring, Amanda Roy, Alexis Hope, Dillan Wolfe, TinaMTL, Amelie Gray, Amber Rose, Yzabelle Wolf.
The presence of the agencies is more modest: XXXtase, Mojo also, but MSC does the best job IMHO. Jessy does a great job of keeping her Twitter feed updated with new content.
I like the opportunity it gives to see sometimes untouched pictures and selfies, updates, and also the occasion to interact with the providers. Definitely a good way to know them a bit better.
I still dont have a twitter account,never had one, am i behind in the times? How do i sign up if wanted to have an account? Do i need an account? Aw forget it, its probably just another password i will have to come up with to just wind up forgetting and go thru hell to retrieve it....
I am both an investor/entrepreneur/developper for the past 15 years in the web industry and it never cross my mind that Twitter would be a important/valuable source to follow for this hobby.
I am quite new to this but I can confirm this site contain much more valuable info. Escort agency web site are pretty much sure thing. Then there is sites like intime, 123, backpage or hump but for all 3 it's like playing "roulette russe", you can find awsome encounters one out of every 6 times...
Twitter certainly is not a review board, it is an advertising / marketing tool primarily for repeat customers. Each day when you log into Twitter, the new posts of the people you follow are there for you to see. If your favorite independent has a new picture of an interesting observation about life, you think about her more than you otherwise would. An agency can do the same, plus it can introduce new talent. As Reverdy pointed out, for some reason users are more inclined to post more realistic photos on Twitter than on a website. Of course like all marketing, once everyone uses it, any advantage goes away.
As the article alludes, many people who would never come to a merb or a TER (in the U.S.) will see the Twitter pages of sex workers. That introduces a lot of non-hobbyists to the industry. I guess that can be good or bad.
Interesting, never saw it that way but so true!

Just like the boards are a good way for you guys to build community, twitter is our community so a lot of times you will see SP/SP interaction or some quick venting about our day (like anyone with any job). We aren't trying to be exclusionary but it has been pointed out that it can seem that way. I personally engage with hobbies via my twitter, some don't. Etcetcetc.
I agree with you, Miss Wolfe. Twitter is great platform on many fronts and I enjoy the interactions with the ladies, the gents and everybody else that cares to participate.

I certainly enjoy the diversity of the client pool on Twitter. It's quite refreshing
I enjoy reading the conversation and banter between SPs and with their clients. Also, I found it's a great way to find other potential SPs, since most SPs are following each other.
In addition, I've noticed that Twitter is a great format, as a form of agency to express their opinions, issues and facts about this industry. I find it fascinating to read about what's going on in the industry from Australia, New Zealand, Ireland and anywhere else in the world.
