Using Twitter to Perform Random Acts of Kindness

Random Acts of Kindness

Think about it.  When a stranger lets you in front of them in line in the grocery store, doesn’t it make you feel good?  When you do something nice for someone you don’t know doesn’t it make you feel good?  Twitter is the perfect platform to perform random acts of kindness for so many people on such a large scale; and the best thing about it is it’s absolutely FREE!

Get More Retweets

I’ve had luck with the following types of random acts of kindness getting retweeted the most.

  • Charities such as Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure, or Animal Charities I like this one because there are various links and all you need to do is click to donate.
  • News about great prices on products i.e. ABC restaurant is having a 99cent sale on their XYZ hamburger regularly priced at $4.89  (although local restaurant info is appreciated – remember Twitter is worldwide – if your followers are worldwide – remember to put the location of the store/restaurant/etc… in your post)
  • Breaking news: whether this is current events like the Japanese tsunami, the riots in London or the earthquake in Virginia, USA, if you can provide helpful information to family or friends relating to any type of catastrophic event, you will get retweeted.  More importantly, you will be performing random acts of kindness.
These are just a few ways you can provide random acts of kindness.  I’m sure you can be creative and think of your own ways.  I would love to hear what did you do for your random acts of kindness?  Be sure to post in on my fan page or leave a comment.


p.s. Sometimes we get caught up in posting interesting, news-worthy, re-tweetable content.  What we always need to remember about social media is that it is SOCIAL.  Remember there are people on the other end of those tweets, take time to read and respond.  You will be amazed how this can make a difference in your follower count. 🙂

  1. Good one. I have a thing in my Twitter account for saving children from abusive environments. Just a tweet a day supports them (somehow). So, okay, I “save children.” “Saving…” Seem that with ‘saving’ children, there’s no interest compounded daily, but we keep on saving, at least 😉

    Love what you do, Knikky!

    1. Thanks Saul! AND… thanks for your continued help, guidance and friendship. YOU ROCK! 🙂

  2. This is great Knikkolette! I usually share the TGI Friday’s coupon I get once a month via email with my Twitter friends. I will check out the charities you talk about above, my favorite charity on Twitter is @forsakengen, I am always supporting Sean and his cause.
