I’m thinking that a Twitter Chat would be worthwhile. What are your opinions?
For those that aren’t familiar Twitter chats are based around following a hashtag (eg #StrokeChat) and often take the form of a ‘meeting’ that generally last 1hr during which the host tweets “#strokechat - Question 1: our topic is…who is here…” and replies might be “#StrokeChat Ans 1 Bill from Ontario” or whatever.
“Qn2 what have you… #StrokeChat” “A2 for me… #StrokeChat”
Normal 6 to 8 qn are doable in the hour. Conversation ‘breaks out’ naturally from the banter in the space between questions and between contributors.
Of course people can contribute any time but often the best experience is ‘interactive’.
There are services that summarise & curate & rank tagged chats that helps catch up when you miss a session
The best experience is also aided with something like tweetdeck on a tablet or pc but is doable on a phone client.
It takes some months to build up a group.
Then becomes a way to link across communities
One question would be what pattern to hold too m EG 2nd &4 th tues of the month at 20:00 uk? - that is doable in the many places west of the uk but not so much east. But then the uk is on the eastern & northern edges of the ‘naturally’ English speaking world
A new & particular challenge is that since ElonMusk took over one has to be selective what tweets tagged stroke you look at the majority of stroke tweets are ABI related so drowning out the others won’t be too hard
