HOW TO TAKE PART IN #CONDOCHAT…
Twitter Chats provide a great opportunity to interact from the comfort of your own home or office. You can “join the conversation” and engage with our guest tweeters in the course of the chat, provide questions for us to pose to participants by sending them in advance to firstname.lastname@example.org or opt to simply tune in to observe and learn.
Everyone is welcome to take part!
Sign up for a Twitter account. They are free and easy to establish. We recommend establishing your account in advance of the event to give yourself a chance to get acquainted with the platform.
Follow @CCIToronto. With your account established, you can visit Twitter.com/CCIToronto, sign in, and select “Follow” to connect to the chapter and have our tweets, including the start of the chat, appear in your news feed.
View the Chat. Twitter posts can be connected through the use of what is known as a “hashtag”. The hashtag for our Twitter Chat is #CondoChat. At the time of the chat, log onto your Twitter account and connect via this hashtag. You can do this by clicking on #CondoChat when you see it appear in your news feed (as a result of following @CCIToronto) or by conducting a search of #CondoChat in the search feature in Twitter. You may wish to refresh your browser intermittently to view new content posted.
Note: Following CCI Toronto and our guest tweeters will allow you to view their contributions to the chat in your Twitter news feed but not contributions made by others who you do not follow. If your plan is to take in only the contributions of our guest tweeters, following them in advance and tuning in when the chat is live is all you need to do.
Contribute. If you would like to contribute a comment or question in the course of the chat, post a tweet that includes the hashtag #CondoChat within it. If you would like to pose a question specifically directed to one of our guest tweeters, also include their “handle” in your post.
For example: #CondoChat @TimmyD_ Why should I attend my AGM?
There is certain etiquette to keep in mind when using Twitter; self-promotion, “over-tweeting” and offensive contributions are inappropriate, so be mindful that you are contributing to the chat for the benefit of everyone who is taking it in.
It may help to consider yourself as attending a seminar or presentation in person and asking a speaker a question in front of a group of people.
Most importantly, have fun and enjoy this unique opportunity to interact and learn!
