How to organize a Twitter chat without even trying

Attention tweeps, members of the Journal Register Company Idealab (yours included) will be holding a Twitter/CoverItLive chat on Tuesday, Dec. 21 at 5 p.m.


We'll be divulging our not-so-secret journalistic tricks, and will be sharing what  new web tools we're using, ideas that didn't work (so you don't have to go through that path) and our visions for 2011 (I'm still waiting for the hovercar).

If you are interested in the future of news, you might want to check it out.  I'll post the feed in this blog as well.

Don't forget to bring your links.

Below is most of the Twittersation that created this beast. It's posted chronologically from newest to oldest, so you might want to start from the bottom.

AndyStettler Tweet with hashtag. Then, feed tweets through CIL for more than one way to access chat. Both mobile and standard access. #JRCchat -5:08 PM Dec 16th, 2010

triciaambrose I like that idea @AndyStettler #JRCchat -5:06 PM Dec 16th, 2010



AndyStettler Why not make one central link for everyone to use with CoverItLive? #JRCchat -5:05 PM Dec 16th, 2010

ivanlajara Agree. Don't forget to bring your links! #JRCchat RT @AndyStettler: @ivanlajara Somehow the link still seems stronger than the hashtag. -5:00 PM Dec 16th, 2010
