So many tweets about fundraising, so many good ones to choose from, but as always we narrow them down to a manageable five at a time. So here is the latest serving of five tweets.
1. Known unknowns
A new book from Tom Ahern is always good news from fundraisers. If only you’d known… you’d have raised so much more offers “airtight answers to 40 questions essential to your fundraising success”

2. Siegfried Voegele
From the latest book to one from the past.
Siegfried Voegele? No, nor me! Chris Keating is performing a service for all fundraisers by resurrecting and summarising his valuable thoughts on direct mail.
One for all the fundraisers – I've started to summarise Siegfried Voegele's insights into direct mail in blog posts, here is the first one. Let me know what you think! #fundraisinghttps://t.co/gTtzGOo7la

3. Emoji for half the world’s population. Period.
Emojis cover lots of different emotions, occasions, experiences and thoughts. But without the activities of Plan UK and other campaign groups, there would still be no emoji to convey menstruation.
We are thrilled to announce that we are actually getting a #PeriodEmoji!

4. Function over form
A reminder from RNIB that fancy fonts in your Twitter name can make your messages hard to understand if you use assistive technologies.
Tweets that appear to have a special font are actually mathematical characters.
Original tweet: You this it's cute to write your tweets and usernames this way. But have you listened to what it sounds like with assistive technologies like VoiceOver? https://t.co/cTgm6gANWV

5. Bold Barnardo’s
It is always time for bold ideas to try to change things for the better. This initiative from Barnardo’s stands out as particularly bold and ambitious. It’s not fundraising related as far as I can see, but an impressive collaboration of talented individuals and organisations.
Big day for us today at #futurebarnardos.
No more sneaking around quietly 🐱. It's time to make some big noise in children's health and care.
