So if you’ve been over on my Twitter recently then you might have spotted that I am launching #IBDHour – the first UK based Twitter Hour for Inflammatory Bowel Disease!
I am a massive fan of Twitter, and think it will be a great way to build the UK IBD community – as well as open it up to contributions from all over the world (where the time difference isn’t too much anyway.
If you’re not familiar with the concept of Twitter hours, then they go something like this. At a pre-arranged time, someone (the host) will start the hour off with some questions for discussion, and all the people participating use the hashtag – in this case #IBDHour – and answer the questions and then respond to other people.
The first event is going to be on 15th September at 8pm UK time, and the theme is going to be ‘Support’.
I’m really excited about it, and hope it will allow people from all over to have a virtual conversation.
If your interested in taking part, then follow @IBDHour on Twitter!
