Do You Tweet?
Bremer Bank. She is our technology/social media expert, mentor and encourager. She is the one who set up the NRS blog, the Bremer Facebook page and one of the people who “tweets” for Bremer.
She shared with us that Bremer Bank currently has 1,350 Bremer Bank followers on Twitter and has held two tweet chats during the past six months. Some of the ways Bremer uses Twitter is to:
• Engage with clients/communities
• Customer service/responsiveness
• Employee recruitment
• Bremer promotion – publicize Bremer events and activities/news
I have a personal Twitter account so I can follow others such as Bremer Bank, the MN Council of Nonprofits, West Central Initiative, media outlets, the Food Network and much more. BUT, I have never tweeted a thing.
I am hearing and seeing Twitter used more and more in business, politics, and in the media, but not as much with nonprofits. So, I am interested in hearing if your organization uses Twitter and how that is working for you. Please share your thoughts with us.
