Our first NerdChat on our Nerds On Site Twitter account last week was a success as Nerds from around the world had several conversations on a variety of technology related topics. There weren’t many non-Nerds during that hour, but we suspect that’s because a lot of people just didn’t know about it yet, or wanted to first observe and see what is was all about.
We are making this Twitter chat a weekly event. Since we’re in the beginning stage, we’re tweaking it as we go, and are always open to suggestions. The first change is we are now holding the NerdChat on Wednesdays at 9pm EST instead of Thursdays.
We fully encourage anyone on Twitter to join the conversation, or jump in with questions about technology topics or about Nerds On Site itself, or just to say hello!
Here’s how to participate in NerdChat:
- NerdChat is from 9pm-10pm EST.
- using search.twitter.com, search for the hashtag #NerdChat (with the “#” sign), or use a website like tweetchat to follow the tweets. Be sure to click the ‘sign in’ button to log into the Twitter website and start tweeting from Tweetchat.
- Alternatively, you can use a desktop program like Tweetdeck, or a web-based service like Hootsuite.
- You can then send a tweet from you account, but be sure to include #NerdChat so your tweet is seen.
