Yesterday I joined Twitter. I am not sure why...or indeed why now. I’ll be honest with you. I was once one of those people who said “I am never joining Facebook” not to mind anything else.
I’ve been a bit behind the times in regards to Social Media and Internet technology. I only started blogging 14 months ago. At first I was very hesitant to blog. I wasn’t sure how you did stuff. But I am so glad I did. It’s introduced me to so many new people across the globe. I thought my blog would be my little way of sharing some personal opinions on volunteerism and volunteer management. My aim has, from the get go, to find a vehicle to express my views. if you told me that I would have a few thousand page views after 14 months I would have been astonished. The reality of close to 31,000 as I write this is simply staggering.
I’ve been on Twitter less than 24 hours and I am already discovering new people in the volunteerism world and existing folk who are sharing views news and much more.
I don’t know what’s next for Twitter and I? But I would encourage all fromour sector to utilise Social media more. To follow what is happening. To stand up and have a say. To shape our future.
We simply need to keep up if we are to have a true say. Please feel welcome to follow me on Twitter. And if this encourages you to join for the first time – I look forward to meeting you there.
Now…what else can I discover???
