Short, sweet, and to the point. Twitter is another incredibly useful social platform where you can share your fundraiser. Unlike other social media platforms, you only have 280 characters to a tweet, so you want to make sure you're including the important stuff. For your reference, the underlined portion of the last two sentences makes up 250 of the 280 character limit.
Consider the following for sharing the most impactful tweet:
- Include an image - This will make your tweet more eye-catching than just words.
- Include your link - This will still count towards the character limit, so we suggest using the shortened version under the "Share fundraiser" button.
- Include the main reason for your fundraiser - Think of it like a theme. What's the most concise way you can describe your reason for raising funds?
- Include a call to action - Direct instructions are best, so be sure to ask them to donate.
Not included in the character count, you can include up to 4 photos, a GIF, or a video in your tweet. You can also add your fundraiser link to your Twitter description by editing your Twitter profile, which will make it easy for followers to find it. You can then add a short, "Link in bio" to the tweet instead of the whole link.
To share your GoFundMe fundraiser on Twitter, you can either click "Share" from within your GoFundMe account and choose the Twitter option, or you can follow these steps:
