My First Experience with Twitter Chat
This past Thursday, at exactly one O’clock P.M., I logged onto Twitter to participate in my first ever Twitter Chat. Always the technological laggard, my reluctance to participate in such a phenomenon was mostly due to my ignorance of it.
My veil of ignorance was lifted upon my enrollment in the Social Media Management class at the University Of Florida, taught by Professor Lisa Buyer. There have been new social media-related things that I have been mandated to do for this class, from creating accounts on the scheduling/analytics platforms of Hootsuite and Buffer (although my trial for the latter just ended, and I do not see myself paying the 10$ a month membership fee), to writing articles on Medium, which I am doing now.
The Twitter Chat that I tuned into was #seochat. SEO, or Search Engine Optimization, is a topic that I was (who am I kidding, I still am) completely in the dark on. Basically, the reason I decided to participate in this chat over any of the other multitudes that may have been going on was that I knew it was scheduled, and I knew it fit into my schedule.
I could wrap my mind around some of these ideas, but from the third question on it was apparent that I was in over my head.
