John White: TTF Twitters for serious reasons.

TTF gets on to Twitter

Published:  20 May, 2009

LONDON: The Timber Trade Federation has joined the illustrious company of Gordon Brown and Barack Obama on social networking site, Twitter. The site enables …

people to post 'tweets', updating other Twitter users on their day-to-day activities. TTF will be using this communications tool to give up-to-the-minute updates on its key activities, including meetings, events and industry developments. 

If you would like to know what the TTF is doing to promote the use of wood in construction and overcome challenges facing the industry, visit the TTF website.

John White, TTF chief executive, said: "It is important that trade associations are responsive to their members. Being on Twitter allows member organisations to see, at a glance, exactly what we are doing on their behalf."
