Twitter for Business: 
Everything You Need to Know
By  Saige Driver, March 19, 2018 


Twitter is a social media and online news platform where people communicate in short messages - up to 240 characters long - called tweets. Founded in 2006, Twitter is now one of the top websites in the world. It's currently ranked No. 8 domestically and No. 13 internationally according to internet  analytics company Alexa. If used correctly, Twitter can be a great marketing tool for your business. Before using Twitter to help your business, here's everything you need to know.
Park It

Two Major Infrastructure Projects Coming To City's Parking Garages in April
The City of Walnut Creek is investing in creating a brighter and safer parking experience in all three of their downtown garages. LED lights will replace the existing light fixtures in the Lesher Center, South Locust and Broadway garages. At the Lesher Center Garage, a new portal project will create a walkway from the garage to the Lesher Center so patrons can travel between the two structures without having to exit on Locust Street.  Click  HERE for more information and to learn about garage closures.
