Twitter has been described as “email on a double espresso!” I’d agree that’s how it can feel sometimes. I happen to love it, but it’s not for everyone.
Twitter is a web application that allows 140 character messages to be sent via text or online on any topic. I receive “Tweets” on my Blackberry from a handful of people and once or twice a day I check online to quickly scroll through the many Tweets I’ve received.
I “follow” experts in the social profit sector to stay current on the “hot” fundraising conversations and topics each day. Translate that to: Daily I receive bunches of 140 character doses of great fundraising advice, suggestions on helpful books, awesome fundraising blogs and lots of really helpful information.
You can “follow” my Twitter updates without using Twitter by visiting my page online to see the latest updates about fundraising, money, giving, and more.
Today I’ve compiled a list of some of the resources I’ve shared so you have them all in one place. Enjoy!
