Much like a live panel discussion, just a bit more free-form, Twitter Chats are concise live conversations on Twitter on pre-determined topics at a set date and time. While the panelists discuss, comment and tweet about the topic, other ‘tweeters’ interested in this topic (or those who are following us on Twitter) can follow along, raise a question, provide feedback or commentary or just chime in as they feel. We will be hosting the Twitter Chat @oraclewebcenter that has over 26K followers, so it should be an exciting discussion with good visibility. And we will then archive the conversation feed on our Digital Experience Platform blog for anyone to see and reference.
As a valued customer, we would like to invite you to participate in the live discussion. If you/your peers and/or colleagues have an active Twitter handle and are interested in participating, will you please confirm by sending an RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org?
Additional details for how the Twitter Chat will work can be found below.
If you aren’t familiar with what a Twitter Chat is, a Twitter Chat is where a group of Twitter users meet at a pre-determined time to discuss a certain topic, using a designated hashtag (#) for each tweet contributed. A host or moderator will pose questions (designated with Q1, Q2…) to prompt responses from participants (using A1, A2…) and encourage interaction among the group. Chats typically last an hour. At the most basic level, you can participate in a Twitter chat simply by entering the hashtag into a Twitter search and interacting with people there. But we would encourage you to use Tweetchat or another tool to organize and filter tweets into a stream for easier conversing. One of the major benefits of using Tweetchat is that it automatically adds the hashtag to your tweet, which can save you lots of time—Twitter Chats move fast! It also refreshes in real time.
Here are some basic instructions to participate in the Twitter Chat:
1. At the scheduled chat time, log onto www.tweetchat.com, or whatever other tweet chat tool you like, using your Twitter name and password. Enter the hashtag for the chat at the top of the screen (e.g. we are using #contentdglt for this Twitter Chat)We are so excited to have you participate in this Twitter Chat!
