Twitter Chat Preparation
I’m stepping out of my comfort zone again. I’ve committed to a Twitter Chat tomorrow night. Therefore, it’s confession time. In the year-plus I’ve been on Twitter, I’ve never participated in a Twitter Chat. Sure, I’ve followed chats like #litlead and #titletalk, but I’ve never jumped in on one of the conversations.
But then I got DM from Cornelius Minor inviting me to join a chat he’s leading tomorrow night. The topic sounded interesting and it’s scheduled for after my daughter’s bedtime. How could I say no save for the fact I’ve never participated in one of these before?
Cornelius advised me to download TweetDeck (which I just did) and to read an article about Twitter Chats (did that too). I have about 24+ hours to figure out how to make TweetDeck work for me so I can see all of the hashtags. (I’m sure there’s a tutorial for that, right?)
So, to all of you Twitter Chat experts out there, what do I need to do/know before I venture into a Twitter Chat tomorrow night? All advice is welcome!
