Hey there Avs fans! I was looking for a way for Avs fans to get even more interaction and connections on Twitter and based on my past experiences with Twitter chats I thought I would give it a go. Twitter chats are a great way for people with similar interests and passions (Colorado Avalanche hockey for example) to have a live conversation as well as have the chance to connect with other fans you otherwise may not have met. I will be more than happy to moderate this chat. I have already created a handful of questions which will be used to guide the first conversation/chat we have.
If you have never participated in a chat on Twitter they go a little something like this. The hashtag is the key to the whole thing. A moderator posts questions while participants chime in. All tweets during this chat should include the hashtag (#AvsChat) so people who aren’t following each other can see each other’s tweets. Participants can follow the hashtag by clicking on the hashtag on their mobile device, but it’s way simpler to use a tool like TweetDeck or TweetChat on an actual computer to follow along. As the moderator, I will post questions with a Q1, Q2, Q3, etc. format. Chatters then reply using the A1, A2, A3, etc. format so it’s simple to see which question participants are referring to. Twitter chats, overall, are pretty simple and very powerful!
I am looking to get this going soon and am hoping to have a couple of #AvsChats before the regular season begins. The only thing I need from those of you that this sounds interesting to is what day/time of day that would generally work best for you to participate. I’m thinking the chat will take about an hour total. If you would please take literally 15 seconds and fill out the form below I will get the very first #AvsChat scheduled here in the near future.
