What is a Twitter chat and how do I participate?
Joining a Twitter chat may seem intimidating, but it’s really is easy! If you don’t already have one, go to Twitter.com and create a free account. (Students, please keep in mind that scholarship judges and college admissions officers read students’ tweets and take note of Twitter usernames! Try and use your real name or something that represents you and passes the Grandma Test. More on the Grandma Test here.)
Once you have your account set up, type #CampusChat into the search bar at the top of the page. Be sure to use the hashtag —> # in front of “CampusChat”. This will bring up all of the Tweets involving SmartCollegeVisit and #CampusChat. At 9pm, you will start to see the questions being asked and the answers being shared. Keep refreshing the page to see all the tweets about #CampusChat, or use a free service like Hootsuite.com to easily follow along and join in on the chat. If you have a question, just ask it in 140 characters or less, making sure to include #CampusChat somewhere in your tweet.
