What is a "Twitter Chat" ?

A Twitter chat is an organized event where people join an interactive, online conversation through tweets. This Twitter discussion uses a specific tag (#) called a hashtag and focuses on a pre-determined topic or theme. All participants use the specified hashtag when replying with their answers, which allows the conversation to be easily followed on Twitter.

Questions are posed with the label (Q1, Q2, Q3…) before each question. Participants respond by composing a new tweet with the label (A1, A2, A3) to indicate which question their tweet is answering. Both question and answer tweets include the unifying hashtag (#). You do not have to reply to the original tweet that asked the Question.


How do I join the #LiveFitNOLA Chat ?

In order to participate, you will need a Twitter handle and account. When it is time for the Chat to begin, search the #LiveFitNOLA hashtag or follow the moderators Fit NOLA and Tulane PRC. If you prefer to simply observe the chat taking place, you can view the conversation in real-time here. After the chat is over, you can view the conversation any time by looking under the "Past Chats" section of this webpage.


What will we be talking about ?

The #LiveFitNOLA chat will talk about health and wellness in New Orleans. Each month features a new theme and guest host(s).
