Next time you seek out customer service through a Twitter message, you may find yourself talking to an actual human rather than a corporate account.
The social network now lets brands display avatars and names of individual employees in direct-message conversations, while still operating through the company’s main profile. The new tool will also more clearly indicate when you are talking to an automated bot.
