Tweetchats are an excellent way to get introduced to Twitter
Tonight – January 6, 2010 – I’ll be leading the first tweetchat dedicated to pharma marketing. While there are social media chats and healthcare chats on Twitter, there is nothing specific to pharma.
What’s a tweetchat?
As you might gather from the name, it’s a chat that takes place on Twitter. At a designated day and time people go on Twitter to talk about a particular topic. Usually the chats are moderated by someone who leads with introductions and questions for discussion. To allow people to follow the chat there is a designated hashtag (#).
Tweetchats are a great way to learn what others have to say, share your opinion and meet other tweeters interested in similar issues.
Don’t have a Twitter account? You don’t need one!
Tweetchats are an excellent way to get introduced to Twitter since you don’t even need to have an account. Simply go to http://twitter.com and in the search box type the appropriate hashtag. To follow along January 6 at 8 pm EST, type #SocPharm. You’ll then see the conversation unfold.
#SocPharm every Wednesday at 8 pm EST
If you can’t make it this Wednesday, catch us next week. Transcripts will also be posted on the Social Pharmer community, which is a resource for pharma marketers. If you are interested in overall healthcare marketing check out the tweetchat #HCSM on Sundays at 8 pm CST, and for a European focus follow #HCSMEU on Fridays at 1 pm CET.
