#NewProfNZ Twitter Chat – Thursday 7th March, 7:30PM

Announcing our first official #NewProfNZ Twitter chat THIS THURSDAY NIGHT, from 7:30PM!

What is a Twitter chat?

A Twitter chat is basically a real-time chat. So we all log-in to Twitter at the same time, ask questions and share answers & perspectives using the same hashtag #NewProfNZ so we can follow the conversation. If you haven’t ever used Twitter before, or if you haven’t been part of a Twitter chat, don’t worry! It’s really easy. Just follow the simple steps below and contact me if you have any more questions.

How to join the Twitter chat:

1. Sign in to Twitter (if you’re not on Twitter, create a free account) by 7:30PM
2. Search for #NewProfNZ in text box in upper right-hand corner

3. You are now seeing the tweets containing this hashtag. Select “all” in the middle up the top to view all the tweets rather than just the top tweets

Results for #newprofnz

4. Now you are ready to join the chat! If your screen looks something like this – you have done it right.


Just make sure you include the hashtag #NewProfNZ in all your tweets so that everyone in the chat will see your replies.

5. I will ask the questions from either my account (@ajwillemse91) or the #NewProfNZ account (@NewProfNZ). They will look something like this:

6. To answer the question, just start your tweet with A (for Answer) and the number of the question (1). Then type your answer and don’t forget the hashtag! #NewProfNZ. So something like this:

If you have any questions you would like asked (and answered) at this chat, either leave them in the comments or tweet them to me @ajwillemse91 with the hashtag #NewProfNZ.

Looking forward to chatting with you on Thursday 🙂

    Sadly I have been around way too long to be a new professional, but I love watching what you are doing and seeing the energy and enthusiasm of the group. Awesome stuff.
