Jocks Can Twitter

The Net Tuesday folks here in Phoenix had an event on Wednesday looking at the (potential) power of Twitter used for good in the Nonprofit Sector. "Using Twitter and Podcasts in an Interactive Photo Exhibit," was a presentation on COAR's use of social media to deepen the individual's relationship with an organization. It was a very cool experiment that had some outstanding results.

I'm interested to hear how you see Twitter and other forms of social media being used in the sector. Or if you have any ideas how to better make use of these powerful tools, I'd like to hear those as well.

Here's how regular people use it. As always, I can be found @samuelisaac.

"Journalism largely consists in saying "Lord Jones: Dead" to people who never knew that Lord Jones was alive."
G.K. Chesterton

It was such a cool presentation. And there were several in attendance "micro blogging" during the event.

@african kelli - That's good to hear. I'm looking forward to see what the Net Tuesday have up their sleeves next!
