How do I participate in a Twitter Party like #AVchat?
There are several ways to join in on #AVchat.
- You can create a search column for #AVchat in TweetDeck, Hootsuite, or your usual Twitter client.
- You can go to Tweetgrid.com and enter “AVchat” as a search term in one column.
- You can go to the #AVchat chat room on Tweetchat.com and sign in with your Twitter account.
- You can search Twitter for #AVchat and refresh often.
Keep in mind that without a Twitter account, you are not able to actively participate in the discussion. Also keep in mind that all Twitter clients pull from the Twitter API. If Twitter’s API is slow, then you will experience a lag no matter which interface you are using since they all read from the same source. For other Twitter Party tips, click here.
