As Karl manages some of his clients´ social media accounts he does not have enough time to spend on his personal one, which is also one of his Marketing tools as a consultant. Since he started using the RSS-Twitter integration he is able to automatically send tweets from sections of the media he follows and that are relevant for his audience.
