How To Prepare for a Networking Event: Twitter Chat 12/2, 9pm #nyci1210

NY Creative Interns will be hosting our first Twitter Chat this Thursday, December 2nd at 9 PM EST – 10 PM EST. In anticipation of the upcoming NY Creative Interns Kickoff Event the topic will be How To Prepare for a Networking Event.


If you’ve never participated in a Twitter chat – let us break it down for you:


What is a Twitter Chat?
A Twitter chat is a guided conversation where users interested in a particular topic use Twitter to chat. The chat is given a hashtag, which allows people to look up the chat and participate. For the NY Creative Interns chat you will want to look up #nyci1210. In order to participate in the chat, all of your tweets must include this hashtag.

What Can I Expect?
The topic is How To Prepare for a Networking Event. We are here to answer your questions, provide networking tips and share articles and resources with you. We’d love to hear from you so don’t be shy! We welcome your participation – this chat is for you!

How Can I Participate?
To follow the conversation you will probably want to use a service like TweetChat which helps you put on  blinders on to the Twitter-sphere while you monitor and chat about one topic. You can log in using your Twitter account so it’s easy to use.  Once you go to TweetChat you can choose a hashtag to follow and you will then be directed to  a TweetChat room. Each tweet you write automatically gets the hashtag added and the room auto-updates so each new tweet will show up in real time.

Follow Up
After the chat ends, follow the users you enjoyed interacting with and learned from. This helps keep the conversation going and strengthens your ties with those contacts. You can also email us and let us know if you have suggestions, questions, or comments. Twitter chats are a great networking tool, so you should use them as such. The same way you’d follow up after an in-person networking event, you should follow up here as well.
