#HRSM Chat 12th April 2012 – Live Tweeting Harm Reduction Conferences

This week’s topic is one that I have visited before.  Live tweeting from alcohol and other drugs conferences is a great way of sharing learning with others who are unable to attend the conference.  With the growing number of people tweeting from conferences I thought it might be a good idea to discuss the tips and tricks that we all use to make tweeting from conferences more effective and efficient.

What tools and tricks do you use when tweeting from conferences?

What can conference presenters do to support live tweeting of their presentations?

What can conference organisers do to support live tweeting?

To read some of my previous musings about this topic check out Drugs, Conferences and Twitter and Drugs Conferences and Twitter: A Revisit


A different chat topic will be posted under the tag #hrsm at the same time each week.  People interested in participating in the chat can simply follow the hash tag and contribute to the conversation by posting a tweet containing the tag.  Throughout the chat a convener (in this case me) will pose topic questions to the group.

Updates about upcoming topics will be regularly posted to this site.  An archive of each weeks discussion will be made available via this site.


#hrsm chat will be happening every Thursday 21:30 AEST. You can find the date and time for your time zone here

You are welcome to join us and get plugged in to what’s happening in the world of harm reduction and social media.
