We are excited to announce our first ever TweetChat focused on the Caribbean on Tuesday, June 11, 2013 from 7-8pm EST. Caribbean Trading will be chatting with Ryan VanDenabeele of RumShopRyan as our guest, who has an excellent Caribbean blog and has travelled throughout the islands extensively. He has a passion for the Caribbean and the island lifestyle (and most importantly RUM!), and we’re excited to hear his insights and tips on all things Caribbean….
TweetChat Important Details:
Tuesday, June 11 from 7-8pm EST
Two ways you can attend #CaribbeanChat:
1. Log into Twitter at the start of the chat and search #CaribbeanChat. You will want to search “all Tweets” because “top Tweets” may skip important contributions to the chat. You’ll continue searching this hashtag as a means of keeping the chat updated. In order to participate in the chat, all of your tweets must include the tag #CaribbeanChat.
2. Log into a hashtag following or social media service with your Twitter account information. Examples include: TweetChat.com, Twub.com, Hootsuite.com, Sprout Social, etc. Enter the hashtag #CaribbeanChat and automatically the service will list in chronological order all tweets that are using the same hashtag.
Please join Caribbean Trading and RumShop Ryan on June 11, 2013 from 7-8pm EST in what will be an inspiring, informative and rummy #CaribbeanChat.
What is a TweetChat?
A Tweet Chat (aka Twit Chat or Twitter Chat) is a guided conversation between Twitter users on a preselected date and time. The Tweet Chat can be easily followed because everyone uses the same hashtag on all of the Tweets (in this case #CaribbeanChat). Everyone is welcome to join a Tweet Chat!
Tweet Chats are awesome places to network, they are a great way to get new Twitter followers with similar interests and also attract new followers! At a Tweet Chat there are opportunities for all attendees to interact, ask questions and share stories.
Tweet Chat Tips (for participants)
- Say hello when you join and sign off with a goodbye when you leave.
- Tell people you’ll follow them with hopes they’ll follow you back and you can form a relationship. I often say “Great to meet everyone! I’ll be following all of the new friends I met on #CaribbeanChat!”
- Be respectful of the hashtag. If you start pasting it to unrelated Tweets you’ll look 1. Rude, 2. Spammy, 3. Like an over promoter.
- Join in! Ask a question, RT a great answer, comment … it’s a chat and the more friends that are contributing the better!
- If you like the chat, contact the host afterwards and offer to be a featured guest or ask if you could submit a topic or question for an upcoming chat.
Hopefully this explains what a Tweet Chat (or Twitter Chat) works! We hope you will join us on June 11th for our first ever Tweet Chat!
