Hope 140 — @hope140

In our brief time together Claire mentioned one of the core values at Twitter – “Being a force for good”. Hope140’s aim is to do just that. Non-profits like Room to Read are benefiting from the program by promoting International Literacy Day in partnership with Twitter.

If you’re thinking about using Twitter or trying to figure out how to use the information network in a meaningful way then Claire has a simple strategy for you — T.W.E.E.T. Rather than trying to write it out it thought I’d point you to the graphic blog post or Cartoon by Rob Cottingham of Social Signal … I found it on Beth’s Blog where she recapped her time at Blog World Expo 2010.
