    Use both of them. You should always be trying to diversify where your traffic is coming from. A mix of organic traffic, social media traffic, referral traffic and paid traffic is probably the best recipe for success.

    Well I would say Instagram as it is growing rapidly. But I am getting into Twitter more also. I don't think Twitter or Instagram are going away anytime soon. The shoutout business on Instagram is exploding and I see people doing the same on twitter and Vine now also. But Instagram is my current favorite.

    Well, it's advisable to go with both twitter and Instagram. Twitter helps to recognise your brand and invoke the response. With Instagram, they tend to meet your target audience and increase your traffic.

    Instagram is so cool now. People is growing their IG accounts. But twitter is also fine. For advertising Instagram is great.

    I suggest you go for Instagram, because 71 percent of the world's largest brands now use Instagram as a marketing channel.

      Couldn't agree more! Choose both for maximum results. If you want to lessen your effort and time, use syndication tools. A good one is IFTTT. Plus, it is free.

    Consider the number of active users, visitors and overall members that they have. Twitter comes on top every for every single factor

    Even the rankings:

    Twitter: 7th website in the world in number of visitors
    Instagram: 39th website in the world in number of visitors

    Instagram is pretty better than twitter.
    If you are able to grow up Instagram 2 accounts then must you'll able to make more money. I know about a gay who is earning above $500/month by T-short selling.

    Hello,
    Instagram is a place to publish original content and build your brand. Twitter is a great tool to curate and distribute content, as well as engage and interact with your audience.

    You don't have to choose one over the other. Look for ways to integrate both into your business or marketing purpose and you'll get much greater results.

    i think that using instagram as a second platform is better because instagram is offering more ways to make money from your strong accounts. Also, many people use instagram and you can target them using hashtags. Twitter is good also but i think that instagram is better for bussiness.

    I think both platforms are good but Instagram's way better. Although Twitter is presently ranked higher than Instagram, i believe Instagram would take over within a few years as it is more user-friendly. The may fact that Twitter is restricted to 140 worded postings and Pictures speak louder than words is enough factor to consider. Also, Instagram has a lot more tools than Twitter does. However, for effective marketing atm, the use of both platforms would be effective.
