Hello My Little Twitter Town-How Are You Today?
I am still learning each time I read a Tweet on Twitter or make a mistake. Yet, there are bloggers like Problogger who has mastered some great Twitter techniques. For example, I attempt to post things that folks that follow me might want to hear. But I am careful to take time and retweet interesting tweets that are appearing at that moment.
When you think about it Twitter is just like face to face discussions in a group. When I facilitate a group I am careful to encourage the silent folks in the group to say something. At the same time I try to discourage domination by one or two people in the group.
In addition, most groups work best when the size is small and not huge. So, I am not under compulsion to have a BIG TWITTER LIST.
Well, I never want to be the person who just talks about me, me and more me in a group. Nor, do I want to be the quiet person all the time that does not feel my content has worth. So, those things stay on my mind when I am on Twitter.
Of course, I must admit, sometimes I go on Twitter when I feel like the pixels in my brain are frozen from fatigue. Then Twitter becomes therapy.
Enjoy this post by Darren Rowse who is one of the most authentic bloggers I know that makes real money blogging. When he talks about Twitter and blogging-I listen.
Many non-profits are seeing the merit of using Twitter, this powerful micro-blogging social media site, for fundraising. This blogger and fundraising coach provides a great blog post on Twitter and Fund Raising.
I like the following post because it gives you some great examples of how Twitter is being used by many non-profits. As a baby boomer I thrive of experiance-based technology applications. Ok, what I mean is show me someone who is using it and then I believe you.
So, in my continuing look into many of the practical applications of Twitter I was happy to see this post by a social media expert.
Also, I appreciate this great overview of Twitter by another social media expert.
Many baby boomers are involved in non-profits. Many baby boomers are also exploring Twitter. That means baby boomers are exploring the huge possibilites for social networking to help promote their “difference Making Messages.” I say yes. Read this excellent post on Twitter and Non-profits.
Share your experiances with non-profits and Twitter.
