Chris McMahon

CCO for the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center (http://nurfc.org) tweets (http:/twitter.com/PaulB67). It's about 50% personal, 50% organization related.

Jill Savage

I'm a non-profit CEO who tweets and blogs. I've been doing it for about 6 months. I do it to keep moms in touch with Hearts at Home (www.hearts-at-home.org) and to let them know I'm human and I do the same things with my kids that they do. No ghost tweeters for me...I do it all myself. My twitter name is jillsavage. Blog: www.jillsavage.org

Another CEO who tweets and blogs is Michael Hyatt, CEO of Thomas Nelson Publishing. He does a great job both with his blog and twitter.

Bianca

One of the best NPO CEOs to use Twitter is Doug Ulman of the Lance Armstrong Foundation. He does it all himself and includes news about the organization, the fight against cancer, and interesting reads and resources. He has over 35,000 followers.

Judy

Sarah Owen is the Executive Director of CCMI (http://www.ccmileecounty.com) and she tweets (http://www.twitter.com/hungerfighter). She does her own tweeting and her goal is to end hunger and her passion is ending childhood hunger. She tweets to raise awareness of this.

Paris Marron

Do you have any tips for encouraging your ED to tweet more? I'm from CODEPINK. We tweet @codepinkalert. Our co-founders both tweet, but @medeabenjamin @heartofj (Jodie Evans), but very sparsely. I've been trying to get both of our cofounders to tweet more, especially from actions, protests, trips, etc. Any suggestions?

Diana Scimone

I'm pres of the Born 2 Fly Project, which works to stop child trafficking (www.born2fly.org). I tweet @DianaScimone.

There are a lot of anti-trafficking NPOs that tweet; I posted a list on my blog a few Follow Fridays ago: www.dianascimone.com (scroll down to April 24).

Tina

My CEO, @GeorgeStevens, at Coastal Community Foundation tweets. He manages his own account and uses it to invite conversation and share news about issues in our community. His tweets also feed into his Facebook profile and selectively into our Facebook page (http://bit.ly/beafan).

Gabriela

I think nearly everyone @sunfoundation loves to tweet. Our Executive Director @ellnmllr is quite prolific in her tweets about what's really going on in Washington. We even include our twitter handles in our staff profiles -- see Ellen's as an example.

Eli Saddler

I'm the founder and executive director of OceanHealth.Org and I tweet daily (@oceanhealth) about ocean news and issues, as well as about our upcoming events or calls to action. It has been great to connect with so many ocean-loving folks and other ocean nonprofits over Twitter.

Linda Raftree (@meowtree)

Several of Plan International's offices are on twitter officially and staff are also tweeting about work via their own accounts (me for example). 2 of our CEOs (Ian Wishart of Plan Australia @ianatplan and Marie Staunton CEO of Plan UK @mariestaunton) have both started tweeting recently. Plan is active in over 60 countries worldwide working on child centered community development.

David Bacon

I'm the Founding Director of Carpets for Communities, a small but award winning innovative Social Enterprise getting kids back to school and keeping them there in Cambodia. Personally I've recently started tweeting a mix of my and organisational stuff. I tweet because it can feed into my facebook so i cover two updates in one...@davidnbacon.

Adam Markham

I'm the CEO of environmental non-profit Clean Air-Cool Planet and I've been tweeting for about a month now. I have about 230 followers and post 5-10 times a day. I find it a great way to build a network and a source of news and new information. I follow several other non-profit CEOs who tweet.

James Topham

@nuttsatwarchild is founder and exec director of War Child in North America. She recently live-tweeted from Darfur. Well worth checking out. Here's an example: http://twitter.com/NuttsAtWarChild/status/1534774794
