I figured I would share how I go about participating in a book club chat on Twitter. My guess is that there is a better way, perhaps even ‘an app for that’, but here is how I do it. Please feel free to pass along your own wisdom in the comments section.
Obviously, I first read the book and take note of where my attention is snagged. Sometimes I use post-it notes to hold my thinking, or I write in the book if it belongs to me. With this one, I bought the book on my e-reader, so I just used the bookmark and notes function.
Next, I open my Twitter account and open up a new tweet. I compose each tweet in that box to ensure the character count is accurate, and then cut and paste the tweet into a Pages or Word document.
When the Twitter chat commences, I select and tweet as seems appropriate.
I find that during the chat I don’t have the time to compose more than responses to other people’s ideas. If I have something I want to be sure to share, having the tweets ready to go is the only way for me.
Hope to chat with you on Sunday!
