Over the past year we’ve worked hard to make sharing completely integral to JustGiving, and this is paying off as we see more and more donations coming through Twitter. What’s striking in this data is that Twitter is driving such a huge volume of mobile donations – which is why it’s so important that we offer supporters a totally seamless mobile experience.” Online giving platform JustGiving reports that Twitter users donated £2.5 million via the site in 2013, an increase of 70% on 2012 and 448% since 2011. Last year over 100,000 donors made donations driven via Twitter.The statistics have been shared by social product manager Jonathan Waddingham, writing on JustGiving’s We Make Social Blog.Although total donations via Twitter are still a tiny proportion of those generated via Facebook, the average Twitter donation of £22 is still higher than the £19 driven via Facebook.JustGiving’s integration with Twitter and other social media channels ensures that donations can have a knock-on effect. Every time someone shares their donation on JustGiving via Twitter it generates on average another £3 for a charity.
