Twitter Chat

Last night I participated in the #lrnchat twitter chat again. I’ve been trying to explain what a twitter chat is, and I honestly think you have to participate in one to “get it”.

Basically, here is how a twitter chat works:

  • They tweet about it before the chat, advertising the time and the hashtag
  • When its time for the chat, the organizer usually has a couple of questions to get the conversation going.
  • Anyone who participates includes the hashtag with their tweets

Last night I tried to capture this for my cohorts who help manage the EMC Proven Professional Community. The set up is ok, but I don’t think I really captured the vibrancy of the actual chat. And Charles pleae do not wince at the non-professional look of these videos…it is finals time for me after all. :)

First the setup:

Then the actual chat:
