Tweetchat, Wednesday 10/12, 5pm PT

Have you ever participated in a tweetchat before? Well if you haven't, it's a great way to connect with your fellow twitterers online about a topic that you're all interested in. I'm starting my first #gearchat tomorrow, Wednesday, October 12, 2011 at 5:00pm PT / 8:00pm ET.

Log onto twitter, start tweeting and enter #gearchat, or do a search for it.

Or, go to tweetchat, enter #gearchat and you'll see a chatroom appear. Start tweeting and you won't have to enter the hashtag every time you type something. It's a website specifically dedicated to these twitter chats.

Have your questions ready!
