Twitter and Facebook court brand managers with hub, search features

PR and marketing pros can learn more about those who post online—and craft content that their fans can find more easily.

Twitter Brand Hub offers marketers a metric called “True Voice,” which analyzes a brand’s share of conversations on Twitter surrounding certain topics. The micro-blogging platform explained how the measurement works on its blog:
