There’s been some back and forth of late relating to Twitter being a good use of time and attention. While I understand the perspectives of both camps I often see myself wandering between the two. Some days I need long stretches of uninterrupted time to be productive. Other days I really enjoy the paths that twitter presents and I make connections that I might not have made otherwise
With that in mind we did an experiment these past few weeks. We dropped a rock in the Pemba Serves Twitter pond and watched the ripples. To do this we used a url shortener called tr.im to measure the traffic on a specific tweet.
So, what is Twitter good for? In this case it’s good for raising $788 to provide kids with transformational outdoor experiences that they might not have had otherwise. A contribution that would not have been possible without the social currency that Pemba Serves or our followers have generated through this new medium.
Thanks to everyone who re-tweeted and clicked.
