In this post we are giving detailed instructions on how to join in our new weekly twitter chats on music production!
Our music production chats will be using the hashtag #p5audiochat. For those of you new to twitter, a hashtag is a keyword with a pound sign in front. Our keyword is p5audiochat, and by putting a # in the front like this #p5audiochat it becomes a hashtag that twitter can use to sort out our chat tweets from all other tweets.
First thing you need is a twitter account. If you do not have one it is easy and free to get.
Go to www.twitter.com and sign up!
To participate in the p5audio music production chat, we suggest that you use the free service tweet chat.
Go to www.tweetchat.com
Enter the hashtag #p5audiochat in the box at the top like this:
Then, all of the tweets that contain the hashtag #p5audiochat will show up on your screen, and any tweet that you type in on that screen will have the hashtag automatically put in the end, so you don’t need to constantly type in #p5audiochat at the end of every post. This service is really great and easy.
The result is that every tweet ending with #p5audiochat appears on that page, and every tweet you post will automatically contain the hashtag #p5audiochat so it will appear in the window! We can have a very real time twitter conversation this way.
If anyone would like to add to this post, or offer additional suggestions, please do!
See you Tuesdays 7:30PM PST!
