I had the unique opportunity to participate in a Twitter Chat last night. The event was organized by a current Doctoral student in Student Affairs, thus the hashtag #sadoc. It was a great way to involve people from all over the country in one discussion. The moderator was in Oregon while many of the other participants were spread across the East Coast and Midwest. The format was rapid-fire question and answer. The moderator would pose a question in the form, Q1 etc?. This would quickly be followed by answer referring back to Q1. Along with unique answers, participants also reinforced ideas and suggestions. I picked up some great ideas and also gained a few followers due to my witty remarks. As a results, I am now following some more people.
Overall, it was a great experience and a new way to participate in a conversation.
