According to Pew Research’s 2015 report, “55% of online adults ages 18 to 29 use Instagram.” That population, not far from a nonprofit’s typical donor base’s age, will age with the platform.

Frankly, that makes Instagram very relevant to nonprofits and their ability to not just tell stories but build community with their current and potential donor base.

Why Join a Twitter Chat?

Twitter chats are a great way to connect with like-minded professionals who are engaged users on Twitter. This elevates your brand, gives you visibility, and positions yourself as an expert on the topic and in the field.

Who doesn’t want to connect with your community? Who doesn’t need help every once in a while?

Joining our weekly Twitter Chat may just be the right thing for you. NPChat takes place on on Twitter every Wednesday morning at 10:00 a.m. Pacific Time.

#NPChat takes place on Wednesday mornings at 10:00 a.m. Pacific Time.

How to Join a Twitter Chat

  1. Follow the hashtag on Twitter (but don’t forget to add #NPChat manually after your tweet or we won’t see your tweet, especially in a comment retweet).
  2. Use Hootsuite or TweetDeck and make a column for #NPChat (but don’t forget to put #NPChat manually after your tweet).
  3. Go to the Twubs page for #NPChat.
  4. My preferred method is using TweetChat. Just go here and login with your Twitter account. You can even highlight the moderator so you don’t miss questions.
