Here are five more tweets for fundraisers, covering grantmaking, an appeal that shouldn’t work but does (spoiler: it’s due to testing!), an appeal with unappealing spelling, and a study of how we really are all in it together.
1. Twitter: more or less
For once a social media channel has turned against the trend for brevity, with Twitter doubling your ration of characters from 140 to 280 characters. Whether verbosity on Twitter is a welcome move remains to be seen, but some UK charities were quick to mark their new-found freedom.

2. When the rules don’t work
Jon Lloyd points out all that is wrong with the Wikipedia Christmas appeal, and why it really shouldn’t be the success it is. But he knows how much the fundraising team behind it test their ideas, even when – or especially when – they go against “the rules”.

This spelling 'frundraiser' was a success ???? pic.twitter.com/8xnaGVnQpa
