NOW Foundation's Love Your Body Campaign is partnering with the National Eating Disorder Association for NEDAwareness Week 2012.
Join Us! On Wednesday, Feb. 29, we will be hosting a tweet chat from 4 p.m. to 5 p.m.
What Is A Tweet Chat?
A tweet chat is a real-time conversation on Twitter. Participants use a common hashtag (#LoveYourBody) to respond to questions the moderator and other participants pose. Tweets (Twitter messages) are limited to 140 characters, which keeps responses succinct.
Register for Twitter Twitter is free! Sign up here
How to Participate:
1) Go to TweetChat.com and sign-in via Twitter.
2) Visit the #LoveYourBody chat room on TweetChat.com to follow the conversation in real-time. FYI: you can search for the #LoveYourBody hashtag on Twitter, but that page will not update in real-time.
*Important - if you tweet directly from TweetChat.com, you do not need to add the #LoveYourBody hashtag to your tweets. TweetChat.com already includes the hashtag for you.
3) If you wish to tweet directly from Twitter (instead of tweeting from TweetChat.com), open a new browser tab and login to your Twitter account.
4) Keep track of when someone replies or mentions you by opening a third browser tab to your Twitter home page and clicking on the "@Mentions" link. Whenever anyone replies to your tweet or mentions you, it will display here. Tweet chats can go a little fast, so this is a handy way of keeping track of when someone is talking directly to you.
