3 Steps to Preparing for Tweetcamp II

Our Mayo Clinic (@mayoclinic) social media team is hosting Tweetcamp II (#tweetcamp2) on Thursday, April 23, 2009 from 3-4 p.m. CDT. You can sign up to participate in the comments on this post (please leave your organization name and city) and can get more details, including the link to the live video stream, on the Mayo Clinic News Blog.

After you’ve signed up, here are 3 steps you can take in advance to get the most out of the experience (and to help share the opportunity):

  1. Sign up for a Twitter account if you haven’t yet. If you need assistance, go through Twitter 102: Creating an Account.
  2. Using your Twitter username, log into the #tweetcamp2 “room” in TweetChat. Use it to tweet your plans to attend, and if you wouldn’t mind, copy and paste the link to this post into your tweet (or you could use this abbreviation to save characters:  http://bit.ly/q9hgu) You will see that you don’t need to add the #tweetcamp2 hashtag if you tweet from that Web interface, and that it automatically subtracts the 12 characters in the tag from your 140-character limit.
  3. To put a smile on your face as you look forward fondly to your upcoming Tweetcamp II experience (and so I don’t need to show this video during the session) take a couple of minutes to view this video on Sharing Mayo Clinic. And if you like it, Tweet it to your followers:  http://bit.ly/pjqY 

These three steps will help you see some of the power of Twitter, and at Tweetcamp II you’ll get even more hands-on experience.
