Over the last few months, Shelby Sapusek and I have shared our differing opinions on several topics via blog posts on JimRaffel.com. We seldom share the exact same point of view on any topic. That is, after all, what makes the posts fun to read (and write). We’ve had so much fun with the concept that we’ve decided to expand it to a weekly Twitter chat. We’ll be kicking that off at 8 p.m. CST tomorrow and every Thursday thereafter as our schedules allow.
How #shehechat will work
Shelby and I have developed a list of about 30 topics that apply directly or indirectly to social media, marketing and communication. These are topics that occupy a large percentage of our working days. We’ll kick off the chat with one of us selecting a random topic from the list and throwing it out to the other for an opinion. Then, the originator of the topic will respond and we’ll go back and forth a bit. Anyone participating in the #shehechat is, of course, welcome to jump into the conversation. We figure that we’ll tackle between four and six topics a week. We’re looking for some spirited conversations and, who knows? They might just spark more blog post debates or become a topic in a future #shehechat.
What kind of topics will you cover?
The easiest way to answer that is to point you to the existing “She Said, He Said” posts that we have already written. You can find all those posts here.
How do I follow along and participate in a Twitter chat?
The answer to this question really depends upon how you utilize Twitter. I use HootSuite and simply create a stream (column) to follow the hashtag. Our friend Phil Gerbyshak recommends TweetChat.com. Phil knows his stuff so I might be trying out TweetChat.com myself tomorrow.
