Twibbon is one of the easiest ways to promote your cause on Twitter.
If you have a cause that you wanted to promote, an obvious tool to promote that cause would be Twitter. It has taken over the web and is the frenzy these days. So why not make use of Twitter to promote the cause?
You can tweet all day about your cause but you might see your followers drop by drastic numbers the more you tweet the same stuff again and again. What would be a passive way of promoting your cause through Twitter? Twibbon.
Twibbon is a simple service that can helps you promote your cause by adding some unintrusive graphic on top of your Twitter avatar. Your followers, of course, see your Twitter profile image with your tweets and if you can make use of that space to promote your cause…a clever idea!
Navigate to Twibbon and you can either start a cause or you can participate in a cause by overlaying that cause’s graphic on top of your Twitter profile image.
To start a cause click on the “Start Something!” button.
Type-in your cause name, a brief description, an image to represent the cause, your Twitter login details and Twibbon will create the cause and will add to the more than 2100 causes available at this time.
To join a cause, you can either choose from the causes that are trending at Twibbon, most supported cause or recently created cause. Or you can use the Find tab to search for a cause.
Once you find a cause you can just click on it to join the cause and Twibbon will overlay your Twitter profile image with that picture of the cause. Keep in mind that Twibbon won’t be replacing your Twitter profile picture but rather would overlay the cause image on top of your Twitter profile picture.
Earlier we mentioned about Hey IT, a service that takes the IE6 upgrade to the corporate IT departments. And when I chose the Hey IT cause Twibbon showed me that it will overlay my Twitter profile picture with the above Hey IT cause image and have updated my Twitter profile with the above picture.
Twibbon seems to be a cool idea to make use of the Twitter frenzy to do something useful. If you find any other use of Twibbon please let us know in comments.
