We have been talking on SmartEGrants about how well social media and grant goals can support each other. In fact, we started saying that social media and grants go together like, well, peanut butter and jelly. Or like peas and carrots. Or better yet, wine and cheese. You can read more about how social media and grant goals overlap here.
This week on #grantchat, we are going to follow the SmartEGrants theme for February of Social Media and Grants, but specifically tackle social media and grants as it relates to Twitter. We’re a Twitter chat…so you’re right…we think Twitter is an amazing tool for grant professionals to utilize. So this week, we’ll be sharing our tips and tricks, and personal best practices as it relates to Social Media for Grants: Twitter.
If you have a blog post or have an article that you would like to share about the topic, we would love for you to do so in the comment section or by using the #grantchat on the social media network of your choice.
