|Join the #MNINB chat today between 5-6 p.m.|
For today's task, take part in a Twitter conversation. In fact, take part in the #MNINB chat today between 5-6 p.m. (Atlanta, Georgia, time--or EST). I'll be there for the full hour (and maybe a little after) to pose and answer questions. It'll be a great opportunity to connect and practice chatting (if you haven't participated in one on Twitter yet).
If you can't make the time (for instance, you live on the other side of the planet and will be fast asleep), don't worry. Just use the #MNINB hashtag to pose questions and/or connect with other April Platform Challenge participants throughout the day and the month.
Once you include the #MNINB hashtag in a tweet, you can click on it to see the full conversation linked to the #MNINB hashtag. Over time, Twitter updates the feed with new Tweets (just click on the button that says new Tweets).
If you use a social media caddy like Hootsuite, Tweetdeck, etc., you can actually set up a stream that collects anything tied to the #MNINB hashtag.
Anyway, I hope to see many of you on Twitter later today.
