Special Needs Ministry TweetChat: Families Touched by Mental Illness…The Impact at Church

The transcript from the March 8th TweetChat can be obtained through this link to the SNAPPIN’ Ministries Facebook page:

Barb Dittrich has graciously invited me as her guest for this week’s Special Needs Ministry TweetChat, scheduled for Thursday, March 8 at 9:00 PM Eastern Time (8:00 PM Central). Our topic will be “Families Touched by Mental Illness…The Impact at Church.”

Here’s how to participate in this real-time group conversation:

First, you must have an established Twitter account.  If you don’t already have one, simply go to http://www.twitter.com and set a free account. When participating in the chat for the first time, click on the following link:

http://tweetchat.com/room/spnmin.

You will be prompted through an easy three-step process.

  1. When you click “Sign In”, you will then be asked to “Authorize an Application” through your Twitter account.  To attend, you will have to click the blue “Authorize App” button.
  2. Once you have done so, merely type in the name of the chat (hashtag) you wish to attend at the top of the page, and click go.  For our chat, type in spnmin.  Now you’re in the chat room!  But you’re not finished yet.
  3. To keep most current with the conversation, go to the upper left hand side of the screen and click on “Refresh Speed”.  Slide the tab down to 5 seconds.  This will keep you up-to-date with the scrolling conversation.  Remember, just like on Twitter, you are limited to only so many spaces for your comments…in this case 132 characters.  You don’t have to add the #spnmin hashtag after every post. TweetChat adds the hashtag automatically.

Invite interested friends and colleagues to join us for this week’s TweetChat!
