What is a Tweetchat?

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

Where will I find the Tweetchat?

Create an account on Twitter and then use the search facility to find #BYOD4Lchat Depending on your Twitter tool you may be able to save this.

How do I take part?

If you wish to respond to a question include the hashtag #BYOD4Lchat within your tweet and precede your tweet with A1, A2, A3 etc.

For example: A1 I have made new professional connections through using LinkedIn #BYOD4Lchat

Do I have to tweet to take part?

No you don’t though your contributions will be valued! By following the hashtag #BYOD4Lchat 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?
