Twitter is such an amazing way to communicate – a really brilliant way to share ideas and thoughts!  Although I’ve written about the the wonders of Twitter in my other blog – NovaNews: The Power of Twitter! and Twittering to my heart’s content! – I just happened upon a new discovery yesterday.

Logging into Twitter, I saw a tweet on one of the groups I follow: #yalitchat announcing that they were starting their discussion about YA Lit in just 5 minutes.  Having only recently started following this group, I had no idea what this was about.  A quick tweet asking for further details saw me join in a great conversation about YA Literature.

It’s easy once you know:

  1. log onto tweetchat.com
  2. add in the hashtag of the group you want to follow: #yalitchat
  3. sign in with your twitter name so you can participate in the conversation

Once you’ve done this, just sit back, read fast and be ready to jump into a conversation with lots of like minded people.  A really great way to share ideas, learn heaps along the way and at the same time increase your PLN.

If you’re interested, YALitChat has a chat session each week at twelve noon Thursdays – Melbourne, Australia time (check for time equivalence in your country)  A schedule of upcoming chat topics can be found on the YALitChat website.
