Would you like to have a Twitter-like service that only your board or staff could view?
Let me introduce you to Present.ly. Present.ly allows individuals to post short, frequent updates that are tracked or “followed” by others. Unlike Twitter, Present.ly provides a secure and private way to share updates among members of a company or organization, without them being visible to the outside world.
I came across this this morning and wondered if anyone has used this for their own agency? If so, please share your feedback in the comments section.

Here is a great story about people using Twitter to fundraise.
Twitter is a microblogging site that allows you to make posts of 140 characters or less. The attraction with Twitter is that with only 140 characters you have to get to the point really fast. The site also makes it very easy for people to follow your writing.
Also I highly recommend reading all of Beth Kanter’s blog entries that are of interest to you. A long-time blogger and social media expert, her blog is specific to nonprofit organizations.
