On Sunday we’ll be conducting our first live Twitter Chat with three doctors from our hospital — answering health questions from the public.
If anyone has any suggestions for best practices with this type of chat, I’d love to hear them. For instance, one ground rule we’ll planning to establish at the on-set is that the discussions must be general in nature, and not patient-specific.
Also, if anyone has any suggestion for the best tool to use, I’d also love to hear it. I typically use Tweet Chat when I participate in a Twitter Chat, but it doesn’t integrate with Deck.ly and let you type more than 140 characters (which I know we’ll need to use for some subjects). Tweet Deck enables you to do that, but it doesn’t follow the hashtag stream as easily — especially if there are a lot of participants. Any suggestions?
