Autism Twitter Day is Tuesday, December 16, 2008, taking place on www.twitter.com. More details are available here. Please do RSVP with your twitter ID and follow the other RSVP members to keep up with the tweets.
The panel members will be specifically addressing their topic and your questions at the following times - 9:00AM, 12:30PM and 8:00PM Pacific Standard Time.
I advise having a window open at www.summize.com to follow the conversation at set times and throughout the day using #ASD and then refresh as needed. Speakers and other tweeters will need to have another window open in www.twitter.com to do their initial tweets and then hit reply at the summize page to respond to questions. This will open another window in twitter when you hit reply to answer a tweet. Simply close that window when done so you don't have too many open.
You may also want to collect links and have them in a word document so that you can post them during the day. It would be best for speakers to have a window open to their website as well. I highly recommend going to summize now and seeing how previous conversations with hashtags flow to get a feel for it.
I will be tweeting the prizes throughout the day and linking to the blog post so members can know what they are tweeting for as a prize. Please also note the prizes that are only open to US members of twitter and then those that can be shipped to Canada, as well as the ones available for International users.
The times listed are the starting times for the panel, since there are several for each timeslot and I have numerous prizes to give away the time is longer than one hour for them. The morning and evening time will be the longest time periods.
