Nonprofit Tweets of the Week – August 5, 2011

I had the pleasure of spending some time in my childhood hometown of Vancouver this week.  Meanwhile, back in the U.S., we saw the debt deal and yesterday's 500-point drop in the Dow.  "Double dip" is the feared term of the week.

Here are some of my favorite posts of the week in the areas of nonprofit organizations, corporate governance, philanthropy, and social enterprises:
