Twitter Chat for MSPs . . . Feedback Needed

You know what I haven't seen in the MSP / SMB community? A Twitter chat!

Maybe I missed it. But I don't think I've ever seen a Tweet chat or Twitter chat in this community. So I'm going to hold one. If it seems successful, I'll look into doing it again.

I've created a quickie form for you to give feedback. No email required. Just fill it out and hit submit. Go to (Thanks)

Whatza Twitter Chat?

Here are the basics.

A Twitter chat is an online event in which a number of Twitter users get together at a pre-determined time to discuss a specific subject. The organizer selects a #hashtag, which is used by everyone who participates or lurks.

For watchers/lurkers and participants, it's easiest if you use a tool such as Hootsuite or Tweetdeck to follow the action.

Generally, the organization starts with a few questions and gets the conversation going. Participants respond to one or more questions. As you can imagine, it's possible to have two or three conversations going at once within the #hashtag "channel."

Just as with online forums or newsgroups, Tweet chats work best if people are courteous and respectful to one another.

I think we'll start with a 30 minute chat. If it's going strong, we can hang out longer. And I promise to invite some really smart people to participate. Including YOU!

Next Step: Picking a Topic and a Time Slot

Off the top of my head, I think the following topics would be good. If you're interested in something else, please fill out the form!

  • SOPs - Standard Operating Procedures
  • Service Delivery Best Practices
  • Employee Challenges
  • Project Management Best Practices
  • Relax Focus Succeed(R)
  • Managed Services in a Month

The form also has options for days of the week and times of the day. So you can leave comments here, but please also fill out the form.

. . . And we'll see how soon we can get this going!
