What is a live Twitter chat and how does it work?
In a live chat, people use Twitter to discuss topics and ask questions around a specific subject.
If you want to ask a question or make a comment, you'll need a Twitter account. If you don't have one yet, you can
sign up for a free account here.
If you just want to follow along, you don't need a Twitter account.
What happens during the chat?
At the event start time, go to
search.twitter.com and type in the hashtag #YAPchat. You'll see a discussion thread of all tweets with that hashtag. As the event progresses, this thread will update automatically.
Or you can follow the chat on the
Dana-Farber YAP Twitter feed. You'll need to remember to refresh the page to see new posts.
You can post questions through your own Twitter account. Remember to include the hashtag #YAPchat so that it shows up in the conversation, otherwise we might not see your comments.
