Last night I joined my first Twitter chat. Honestly, not sure what took me so long to check one out, but when I saw Bart Yasso was going to be answering questions on #AskGreatist and I was home doing nothing (ok, I should have been studying, but we’ll call it a study break!) I decided to check it out.
For those who aren’t familiar with a Twitter chat it’s basically a pre-arranged group chat communicating through tweets using a specific hashtag (a hashtag is an identifying word preceded by a “#”) so participants can search the hashtag and follow the conversation – last night’s hashtag was #AskGreatist (you can click on the link to view the entire conversation).
It was actually really cool! I was able to tweet questions using the hashtag that were answered by Bart himself! Check out my questions and his answers below:
(Bart followed this one up by saying he prefers to stretch after runs because that’s when his muscles are warm!)
How cool is that! I honestly used to not really be a huge fan of social media, but I do have to admit it’s pretty cool when someone like Bart Yasso is accessible for everyone to ask all their running questions to!
Have you ever participated in a twitter chat?
Are there any good regular ones you suggest checking out??
