Here are five more recent tweets for fundraisers’ delectation and edification. Disappearing coins (although a government u-turn suggests that won’t be the case), what does and doesn’t annoy donors, and the fundraising potential of your greatest hits posts on Facebook are all featured.
1. Down to your last penny?

Retrospectively adding donate buttons to one or two organic posts a week (the best-performing ones) has led to February seeing 13% of online donations coming from Facebook.
