How a Tweet Chat Works

 

  • Who:  All those interested in the topics that also have a Twitter ID. 
  • What: A tweet chat is an online conversation held at a prearranged time which follows a specific hashtag. In this case, we will be using #I4EChat for each of our Twitter chats. Chatroom link: http://tweetchat.com/room/I4Echat
  • When:  Monday, August 11, Wednesday, August 13 and Friday, August 15 at 1pm EDT/10am PDT.
  • Where:  The chat can be followed on Twitter using the hashtag #I4EChat.
  • Why: The goal of the discussion is to help entrepreneurs/start-ups and managers understand the technology options available to them and how to leverage these options to improve business via an engaging informative discussion.

 

We will cover a different theme each day we are holding an I4E chat:

    • Monday: Tech and Biz Strategies to Drive Growth
    • Wednesday: Tech and Biz Strategies to Drive Innovation
    • Friday: Future Friday – It’s the end of the week, but the future is just beginning. How tech will influence business in the future.
