#Houston, We Solved a Problem

tweetchatWith all this talk of “Polar Vortexes” and “Snowpocalypse,” we in the Northeast overreact a bit to a forecast of snow. Last night’s forecast of 4-8” with flying monkeys here in Central Massachusetts turned out to be hardly a dusting… Anyway, I’ve got to get ready for today’s “Tweetchat” hosted by (Work)Joyce’s Workforce Institute. The furious twittering begins at high noon ET today, and the topics include #bigdata, #socialmedia, #mobile, #ACA, #cloud, & more! Tweet chats are fun, informative, and you can play! You just need a Twitter account; the hashtag to follow is #kronoschat, and the best way to participate is to use Tweetchat:

  • Sign in using your twitter credentials to authorize the app
  • Enter hashtag: #kronoschat
  • The tool will display all tweets using that hashtag in real-time. The tool conveniently filters out the noise from your twitter home feed and focuses solely on the tweet chat.
  • You can tweet directly from tweetchat, which will automatically include the hashtag for you.
