Last week, I had the opportunity to present at the 2011 Volunteer Management for Nonprofits Conference here in New York. It was a shared session, where I presented some basic information to (mostly) organizations who haven’t yet tried out Twitter, focusing on using the platform in general as well as ways to activate and engage a community; and Katherine from Baby Buggy shared her own case study of building the @loverecycled community on Twitter and helping turn those interactions into resources to serve families around the country. I’ve presented about Twitter before, as well, so in addition to sharing some notes and resources, and my slides, from the presentation on Friday, I want to also round up other Twitter-related posts and links here.
Here are my slides from the VMNC:
