i used to tweet for REFORMA.  We established a huge following on Twitter
and have a good facebook presence now.  I don't work for them anymore, but
I can tell you we used genuine posts on issues concerning
our constituency and worked to forge relationships with other organizations
that held common interests--sharing information with them and passing along
relevant information from them to our followers.
