How does the Red Cross use Twitter?

We use it nationally to provide important information during disasters as well as to share what we’re up to as an organization, across all our services. Many individual Red Cross chapters also use Twitter to engage with their local audiences. And we would all love to hear from you! You’ll find our directory below.

  1. This is some really information, I just finished my paper for class and wish i would had found this article sooner. You may have just made me a regular 🙂

  2. Question, I see people on facebook starting their own “fan” sites or whatever they’re called to collect money. Is it illegal for people to set up stuff like that and asking people to send money to his paypal account? I know its not safe but he said he’s got pictures of himself on there and he’s donating all the money. I know it would be nice to believe people when they say that but sometimes the worse people come out in the worst of times. Is it illegal wether he’s or not?

  3. The STUDENTS IN HAITI are ready for the Red Cross to start disbursing some of those funds to help them RECONSTRUCT their lives with respect to EDUCATION.

    Why is it that the RED CROSS is holding on to the money and not releasing it right now? WHY?

    Please support the HAITI STUDENTS SUBSCRIBED AND WAITING FOR HELP at haitiecole.com

  4. The rapid development of Twitter third party applications amazes me! Every time I think I have everything that I need to maximize my Twitter tool box I am introduced to one more great platform – thank you for the introduction to “Nearby Tweets.” I can see a dozen ways to add value to my coaching clients and to my follow community through this application. The was a nice comprehensive overview of the selected services. Thank you for bringing this to light.

    I also like the http://tinyurl.com/y8wqgap/ at the end, like you have it

  5. Could you please add in a New Hampshire listing and add the Red Cross Granite Chapter. We are RedCrossGC. Thanks!

  6. Hi!

    I just saw that you dont have the Mid-Michigan chapter of the American Red Cross listed. It’s twitter is: RedCrossMidMich!

  7. It’s a shame you don’t have a donate button! I’d certainly donate to this superb blog! I suppose for now i’ll settle for book-marking and adding your RSS feed to my Google account. I look forward to brand new updates and will talk about this site with my Facebook group. Chat soon!

  8. Hello from Germany! Please add all our partners in Europe. We’d love to follow you! 😀

    We’re SAF locations.

  9. The world today is involved in too many crisis that need assistance. As a nation, I want every human being to except one another even though I know it’s impossible. I want education to be the priority for children, I want people to contribute not for exchange of something, but the honor of helping those in need. I know for a fact that together anything is possible.

  10. The link to the Orange County, CA chapter seems to be linked to a random personal account.
