In his book Where Good Ideas Come From, Steven Johnson writes: “...most great ideas first take shape in a partial, incomplete form.” … “Liquid networks create an environment where those partial ideas can connect... they help complete ideas."
Twitter is a liquied network. How do we curate and capture these ideas around an interactive experience? This is where Twitter chats come in using hashtags.
1. Choose a chat. I follow #edchat and #edtech, but use other hashtags depending on the content.
2. Follow a chat. If you are not sure what chats to follow, follow the people who are chatting about the things you are interested in.
3. Participate in the chat. If you like something someone tweeted, retweet it or reply to them but remember to use a hashtag to keep the chat going.
