2014 Get Started Write Challenge: Day 16

Today’s task is to participate in a Twitter chat. The first chat will start around 4 p.m. (Atlanta, Georgia, time).

If you don’t have a Twitter account, then an additional assignment is to create a Twitter account. They’re free to set up. Just go to www.Twitter.com and follow the prompts. (Plus, here’s a Twitter cheat sheet I developed a few years ago.)

Okay, here’s how the chats will work (in case you didn’t take part last time):

  • The chat will last roughly 1 hour. Join one, or jump in on both.
  • We’ll use the hashtag #gswc so that everyone can see what everyone’s saying. On each tweet, just include the #gswc hashtag and click on the hashtag to see the conversation (be sure to select “All” or you might receive a limited view).
  • I’ll have a few conversation starter questions, but I’d love it if you asked me (and others) questions. Let’s have a conversation about what’s working, not working, things you’d like to accomplish, etc.

It’s really informal. And if you live on the other side of the planet or have a job that won’t enable you to join the conversation, that’s fine. Just check out the hashtag after the fact, and you may find some interesting tweets, links, information, etc.

See you later today on Twitter.
