Twitter And Its Many Uses

At the National Volunteer Health Agency conference in Atlanta last week, one of the presentations dealt with Twitter, the micro-blog you can use to inform your friends of what you’re doing. Twitter is so new that those agencies in attendance still couldn’t figure out if it could help them in accomplishing their missions.

  1. I think agencies may struggle for a while to find strategies for using Twitter that are more worthwhile than their current efforts. However, I think it’s a great tool for listening to what other people, constituents and organizations are saying online. I often run across ideas and discussions I don’t catch anywhere else online.
