    “Social media-based marketing is a natural tool for organizations that depend on the willingness and interest of its supporters. These nonprofit organizations include museums, theaters, relief and aid services, and family and child support organizations. Such organizations are deeply connected to their members and the audiences they serve.

    “In a lively discussion today with a seasoned advertising executive he pressed me on one of his clients doesn’t really need to DO TWITTER. He had a clear reasoning.

    “On Twitter, when you follow someone, the natural reaction is for them to check out your profile and decide whether you’re worth following back. Everyone has their own algorithm for who gets followed back; personally, I won’t follow anyone who has a dollar bill as their avatar, but I will follow anyone who’s local.
