Global Tweet Chat

We anticipate this will be a full-day tweet chat spanning at least 10 time zones on September 18, 2013. Each tweet chat will cover a different facet of digital storytelling and feature social media exports with nonprofit and library participants.

We will use the hashtag “SocMedSep”

Net2 organizers will be provided with a hosting guide to help shape and promote their contribution to the global tweet chat.

It will be modeled on the Digital Storytelling tweet chat.

What’s a tweet chat?
Tweet chats are real-time discussions on twitter using a shared hashtag. You can learn more about tweet chats here or check out this list of nonprofit tweet chats.

Interested in leading an hour of our upcoming global tweet chat on Wednesday, September 18 during Social Media September? Please visit the Google doc and pick a time you’d like, using this handy time zone converter to match up the local time you’d like with the correct time in UMT. All 24 hours are represented on the Google doc, so it should be pretty easy to slot yourself in at an appropriate time. Please also include your name + email, city, and the topic of your tweet chat.

Stumped on a topic? Here are some sample ones you are free to choose from. But don’t feel constrained by these—be creative! Be responsive to your own community’s needs! Pick something that will work for you.

  • Nonprofits on Google+
  • Using social media to influence public opinion
  • Advocacy and activism on social media
  • Measuring your social media impact
  • Volunteer recruitment, engagement, and management and social media
  • Using video (Instagram, Vine, YouTube) to tell your cause story
  • movie
  • postitles
  • movielogin

Check out the madness and fun of last April’s global tweet chat on digital storytelling.

LOADS more info will be coming soon, including a sample promo blog post, sample tweet chat questions, and a lovely guide showing how to run a tweet chat. Meantime, please pick your time slot as soon as you can. As soon as this smaller group picks their ponies, we’ll be opening things up to a larger group to really get the fun started.

If you could pick your time slot by EOD tomorrow before the weekend, I’d be thrilled. Early (very early) next week would also be great.

Thanks a million. Really looking forward to tweeting around the world with you at #SocMedSep
