Tweetchat help

Every answer serves as a starting point, not an end point. It invites us to ask more and better questions. (Douglas & Seely Brown, 2011, 82)

What is a Tweet Chat?

A TweetChat is a virtual meeting or gathering on Twitter to discuss a common topic. The chat usually lasts one hour and will include some questions to stimulate discussion. Questions will be preceded with Q1, Q2, Q3 etc

For example: Q1 What apps or services do you use to connect with others online? #LTHEchat

Where will I find the TweetChat?

Create an account on Twitter and then use the search facility to find #LTHEchat
(Depending on your Twitter tool you may be able to save this) or follow this link [add].

How do I take part?

If you wish to respond to a question include the hashtag #LTHEchat
within your tweet and precede your tweet with A1, A2, A3 etc.

For example: A1 I have made new professional connections through using LinkedIn #LTHEchat

Do I have to tweet to take part?

No you don’t though your contributions will be valued! By following the hashtag #LTHEchat you can simply read the questions raised and answers by those who respond.

If I can’t make the time slot can I follow the TweetChat later?
