Social media can seem annoying to some, but it can be very helpful in animal and people assistance.

I work in social media and would be happy to share my knowledge. Any questions about how to use Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, G+, etc?

Thank you for the offer!  I'm about to start using our shelter's facebook account to promote cats for adoption.  Their twitter account is linked from the FB account and that seems to be all it's used for.

I'd like to use the twitter account more effectively - maybe tweet a picture a day of an available cat?  Problem is...I know NOTHING about Twitter...

I recommend not having the two linked. If you have a smart phone, Twitter is very easy from the app.

Twitter tips for your shelter
-Follow people: famous animal activists; local and national animal charities; local politicians, businesses, newspaper; volunteers
-People accept more posts on TW over FB, so tweet away!
-Tweet pics of animals up for adoption, fund raisers, volunteers (with permission), cute pics of animals together
-Retweet and @ respond to people, the more you engage, the more the message gets out there
-Have contact info included in your Twitter profile

Let me know if you have any questions, and thank you for caring about animals!

Mickey, thank you!

Can I ask -

"Follow people: famous animal activists; local and national animal charities; local politicians, businesses, newspaper; volunteers"

I thought that the goal of Twitter was to get people to follow you, not you following people?  What is the advantage of following others?

Yes, you do want people following you. But you need people to find out about you. When you follow someone they will be notified and could follow you back.

Make sure all volunteers, friends, etc follow!
