Well I just took part, or well observed for the most part my first ever twitter chat. I am in a daze and don’t really know what just happened other then to say information was thrown in every direction possible. I learnt a few things, and they are as followed:
- When there is a glowing blue line at the top of the chat that means your scrolling is still clicked off so you are not getting the most up to date tweets as they come in, and it takes awhile to catch up again.
- I don’t really care for “Open Mic” nights I think it would have been better if we were all talking about a specific topic not all just throwing ideas around and advice around.
- Be aware of who the people are replying to, and try to mentally keep track of who’s saying what.
- Don’t plan to do an ed chat on Super Bowl Sunday!
I honestly maybe got a few tips and tricks but since so much was happening I don’t think I necessarily got information that is going to transform my blog into something amazing anytime soon. I am interested to see what a chat is like with specific topics or questions.
