It’s almost time for the very first #CommsChat – a weekly live Twitter chat about anything and everything to do with communications.
Here’s all the information you need if you plan on taking part…
What, when, where, who, why…
What: The inaugural #CommChat – Topic: “Ethics and you”
When: Monday 24 May 2010 at 8pm-9pm, UK time (a full list of converted international times can be found at the bottom of this post)
Where: On Twitter…using the designated #CommsChat tag (further instructions below)
Who: Anyone with a passion for communications (social media, PR, journalism, digital, marketing etc)
Why: #CommsChat aims to provide communicators with a chance to share knowledge, opinions and advice with their peers, creating a robust and useful community in the process
Put simply, we want to get people together once a week to help each other grow as communicators and individuals.
The plan is to host #CommsChat every Monday night between now and the end of the year to see how much value it adds.
Each week we’ll collectively choose a topic and discuss it back and forth, allowing for as much knowledge to be shared as possible.
How to take part
The easiest way to take part is to use a service called tweetchat.com.
We have pre-loaded tweetchat.com with the #CommsChat tag for you to directly link from on Monday.

Emily Cagle is moderating the session and will outline the rules / customs at the beginning.
