Credit Unions Putting Pieces of the Twitter Puzzle Together

Are financial issues a very serious topic? Yes! And I’m not telling your credit union to use twitter to tell knock-knock jokes over twitter all day (although, I do love a good knock-knock joke!) but these financial times are hard on everyone. Having a light-hearted tweet every now and then that shows your personality can really be an encouragement to your followers and it allows them to connect with you on a different level. Because people work at your credit union, too and we all struggle with some of the same issues. This is particularly important to remember when dealing with customer service. Level with your credit union's members.

Inspiration in 140 words or less is perfect for a mom on the go, a college student on the way to her class (because college students certainly wouldn’t be paying attention to twitter IN class, now would they?) or a businessman waiting in the airport. People don’t always have time to read an entire article about something, so tweeting a summary or snippet from the article not only can inspire and encourage them but it also gives them a reason to check out the article (hopefully it is posted on your website because you wrote it on your blog!) you linked to in case they do have time. (you did link to the article, didn’t you?)

People want to know who they are talking to. Have you ever followed one of those egg profiles on twitter? Probably not. No picture sends a message that you are trying to stay hidden or you are spam.  Even if you don’t always have the same person tweeting, make sure your audience knows who the tweeters are! At the very least, have a picture of your logo. Take a look at @ThirdDegreeAdv’s twitter page for an example of how Third Degree does this.
