If so, I’ve solved a potential head wrecker for you.

Problem: you market a product that targets the island of Ireland. You have an interest in being found in Belfast, Ballycastle, as well as Ballymun, Brittas, and Belmullet.

Twitter Ads allows you to target “Ireland” which is the 26 counties. But when you try “Northern Ireland” it firmly maintains its southern stance and gives you only Donegal as an option.

You’d be mad to target the whole of the United Kingdom and hope that our Northern brothers and sisters find you. And when you go back to Twitter for help, that’s what they initially tell you to do. #PoorService
