Twitter may not be as popular as Facebook, but for solar energy users and businesses Twitter is an indispensable tool. With over 200 million users generating over 100 million tweets a day one cannot ignore the networking benefits that Twitter offers.
For the uninitiated, Twitter is a social networking and microblogging service enabling users to send and receive messages called tweets. Tweets are text-based posts of up to 140 characters that are displayed on the user’s profile page.
Recently, real-time chat among Twitter users has become a popular way for followers of a particular topic to meet, exchange ideas, and make new friends.
On Wednesday April 6th, at 6:00PM PST, and every Wednesday thereafter, Solar Energy Directory (@solarenergy_dir) and PSEO, Professional Search Engine Optimization (@PSEO_Inc) will be hosting a 1-hour solar energy chat on Twitter. We invite each and every one of you to attend.
This week our special guest will be Patricia Agudow, VP, OPEL Solar Inc.
To access you will need to do the following:
1) Become a member of Twitter if you are not already. Membership is free. For support help, see Twitter basics.
2) At the specified time, enter #solarenergychat (with hashtag #) in the search window and voila, the conversation will unfold before you. If you’re not familiar with the use of hashtags see Twitter Support: What are Hashtags?
3) When posting remember to include #solarenergychat at the end of your post to insure it appears in the chat queue, otherwise we won’t see it.
