Sun June 9 19:00 GMT – BaW Tweetmeet


Participants in Learning2gether are welcome to join those in BaW in a Tweetmeet to be held June 9 from 19:00 GMT

BaW (Becoming a Webhead; http://evosessions.pbworks.com/w/page/61740277/2013BaW) are an ongoing EVO session <http://evosessions.pbworks.com> that take on topics from time to time between EVO events each January.

In this scheme, June 2-9 is dedicated to Twitter; e.g.

A Tweetmeet is where users of a common #hashtag communicate synchronously on Twitter.

BaW coordinator Teresa Almeida d’Eca notes that BaW have done this before. The intro to the TweetMeet2 page recaps a recent one: “it all boils down to going to Twitter and start messaging with the (to be announced) hashtag.”

The hashtag for this one is #13baw – As Teresa says “It’s totally free of people at this point”

tweeting away to your hearts delight.  🙂
