B4 2 if u r lucky Grow your community Find & Engage Quality Followers Golden Rules Twitter Lexicon "Cisco just offered me a job! Now I have to weigh the utility of a fatty paycheck against the daily commute to San Jose and hating the work." Why Twitter? 200 Million Twitter Accounts One billion tweets per week 177 million tweets sent on March 11, 2011. # 572,000 new accounts created on March 12, 2011 “We aspire for UNDP to be a world class
knowledge-based organization.” What is Twitter? easy accessible - no account needed to read tweets
& global reach Show the human side of UN Engage in Dialogue Raise Awareness Build Trust Listen A microblogging service that allows users to post (“tweet”) content limited to 140 characters in length Imagine being able to send a text message to 30,000 people. Imagine your words being passed on by 5ppl. Then 20. Then 100 Imagine being able to see what most people are talking about right now Give credit – find out if person/organization you are referencing has a Twitter account

Provide context - reference link, hashtags, where you are, no blind links

Make it interesting - quality over quantity, not just self promotion - it's a conversation. Use photos & videos

Use URL shortener (e.g. bit.ly) to save space & track clicks

Don’t link to corporate news clippings, pdfs, articles requiring subscription but to easy accessible online content Twetiquette Bear in mind: You are UN’s human face on the social web

Be objective and impartial

Reflect the views and opinions of your UN agency

Refrain from singling out a member state

Be careful when retweeting & linking to external sites - could be viewed as endorsement

Include name of agency, fund, programme, senior official mentioned

Be careful with negative comments

More than 1 Twitter account? Check which one you're posting on

Triple check your updates - you can delete your tweets from your own timeline but not from someone else's (Retweets!) Tweeting from Events Note taking for yourself
