Twitter Thursday: Here’s Who We’re Following
Happy Thursday, everyone!
It’s hard to believe that January is already behind us. I’m always amazed at how it seems like I just did a Twitter Thursday post, but there you have it. Time waits for no blog.
If this is your first Twitter Thursday blog post: welcome! Twitter Thursday is a regular NCG blog feature where we highlight the philanthropic thought leaders, individual grantmakers, foundations and other philanthropic organizations we’re following on Twitter.
And you can always follow NCG on Twitter at twitter.com/NorCalGrant.
Here’s Who We’re Following
With 20 tweets under his belt (ostensibly new to the Twitterverse) is artsted, NCG member Ted Russell. Ted is a Senior Program Officer for the Arts at The James Irvine Foundation and, I should mention, Ted’s also a member of NCG’s Arts Loan Fund.
So far Ted is using Twitter to share information about arts funding and highlighting the work of arts organizations. Here’s a sampling of his Twitter activity:

Created by philanthropist George Soros, the Open Society Foundations “are a family of offices and foundations” that “work to build vibrant and tolerant democracies whose governments are accountable to their citizens.”
Open Society uses their Twitter account to promote causes that align with their mission to promote democracy and share information about their work as an organization.
Here are some of their latest tweets:
