10 Valuable Tips for NGOs on Twitter

NGOs & Causes

NGOs & Causes

Twitter is fundamentally changing the way people, companies and organizations interact and share ideas. With that said, and especially in the case of NGOs, it is very important to learn how to utilize Twitter in order to achieve the goals and objectives they are trying to promote.

Therefore, for today’s post, I will be sharing with you 10 useful and equally valuable tips for NGOs on Twitter:

1. Monitor Discussions & Relevant Updates:

Once you’ve signed up and chosen the right Twitter name, avatar and background for your NGO, start out by doing a search. This will familiarize you with the relevant content on Twitter and will give you a taste on how to proceed further.

2. Identify & Follow:

Identify the most influential and interesting Twitter users in your sector and follow them. You can also look up your friends and colleagues since they might help you get more exposure for the cause you are promoting. Tweepi.com is a great tool for doing that!

3. Customize Your Account:

Add a descriptive bio, a related link and customize your page to encourage tweeps to follow you. There’s just enough room for a short description in your Twitter bio so use it; explain what you’re doing or, if you’re representing an organization or campaign, and describe your activities.

4. Create a Relevant Voice:

Perhaps you want to inspire debate by asking pertinent, open-ended questions or maybe you want to inform about issues. It’s up to you which tone of voice you use but avoid going into rants or being idle.

5. Patience, Grasshopper:

There are many services out there that promise huge number of followers, forget about them; what you really want is quality not quantity. Having 50,000 people who aren’t listening to you or retweeting you is not as valuable as 100 advocates who will evangelize your cause.

The way to do this right is by being active through posting relevant and interesting messages and responding and engaging with followers. Continue reading »

10 Awesome Web-Based Twitter Clients

There are a great number of ways a person can tweet nowadays; whether it’s from the original website, through your iPhone or your desktop app, the competition is fierce. From that competition comes innovation, and Twitter has its own fair share of innovative clients that are available on the web.

Each client has a its own niche and reasons for why its special…

1. Brizzly

An interesting client in that it doesn’t feel pretentiously high-tech, it’s just more about enjoying your Twitter rather that drowning in statistics and management.

Pros: Mute users without unfollowing; inline image, video and map display.

Cons: Too simple for social media junkies.

2. Hootsuite

If you can appreciate the utility of an electric screw driver over its traditional cousin, you will appreciate Hootsuite.

Pros: Connects to everything; completely customizable; great for companies.

Cons: Far too complex for everyday tweeting; can feel awfully cluttered; we don’t like the interface.

3. Seesmic

While famous for its desktop app, its online cousin is certainly an excellent client. It allows you to choose between single- and multi-column mode, preview bit.ly links inline and stay on top of lists, searches and trending topics.

Pros: Simple and straightforward without missing anything important; nice user interface.

Cons: Doesn’t have the full set of power user features.

4. Splitweet

Targeted at corporate users who need to both manage multiple accounts and track their results. What makes Splitweet great is that it will, unlike HootSuite, automatically update your stream and offers a brand name tracking feature that lets you track custom searches along side your regular stream.

Pros: Allows you to tweet in many different languages.

Cons: It does not have the feature to isolate your Twitter accounts so you could see activity for just one as opposed to see multiple accounts mashed together.

5. Media Funnel

Media Funnel has some unique features, such as editorial control for a team of users, a guest posting feature, and email alerts for keywords/brand mentions. Continue reading »
