  • How Do I Participate?
    • There are several ways...
    MDchat.org - @MD_chat
  • Hashtag: # MD chat
    • Hashtags (keywords prepended with a “#”) demarcate tweets into searchable metadata - in the case of Twitter conversations, they signify a rallying point for participants.
    MDchat.org - @MD_chat
  • Search Twitter
    • Search Twitter ( Search.Twitter.com ) for #MDchat to view a real-time chronological order of tweets demarcated as #Mdchat (be sure to include the # symbol).

  • Twitter Clients
    • Following a Twitter chat can difficult to follow since regular tweets and tweets marked with a hashtag can be difficult to segregate real-time. Fortunately, there are third-party applications which streamline participation into a focused channel.

  • TweetChat
    • Third-party applications enhance the value of Twitter. TweetChat ( TweetChat.com ) is an example of one such client. It displays only the tweets bearing the hashtag you wish it to display, thus focusing your attention.

  • Other Applications
    • TweetDeck – TweetGrid
    • The best way to learn is to sign up to Twitter and simply follow along the hashtag during one of the chats. Most new users – even the skeptical - figure it out quickly.
