What is a Twitter talk?
A Twitter talk is simply an opportunity to get together virtually and talk shop using Twitter as the communication tool.  It allows you to remain in the comfort of your cubicle while still engaging with other researchers across the world in real time.

How do I participate in the Twitter talk?
1. If you haven't done so yet, be sure to follow @APRA-HQ and @ApraCanada. 

2.  On February 12, login into your Twitter account and look for messages with the hashtag #apractalk.  Or, you can go to http://tweetchat.com/ and login to this free service with your Twitter account.  By using Tweetchat.com, you will be able to filter your Twitter feed so that it only includes the hashtag #apractalk.  This free service also automatically adds the hashtag #apractalk to your tweets.

3. In the first few minutes of the talk, introduce yourself (including the hashtag #apractalk in your tweet, so we know you are participating in the conversation).
