Twitter will still be here in 10 years – but in whose hands?
Where does the time go? I ask because I was staggered to learn that Twitter is 10 years old.

Like the big marcomms firms, the consulting giants are looking to expand their skill-sets and buff up their offerings – by acquiring talent and capability if need be.
