What is a CrowdChat?

A CrowdChat is a one stop solution to hosting #hashtag chats across multiple social networks. It is essentially like Tweetchat, with all the updates sent to Twitter and the #hashtag automatically appended. But it also preserves the conversation transcript, allows for back-linking with Twitter cards and preserving the Question / Answer format of the session. Voting allows interesting content to bubble up, even after the chat ends.

  • Anyone visiting our unique CrowdChat link ( ) can see all the updates. No registration is required.

  • If want to vote, answer or ask something, you can sign-in via Twitter/Facebook/LinkedIn in order to participate.

  • This is a place we can bring lots of people together to have a hosted conversation on social media in a short amount of time (1 hour).

  • Check out last year'sDOES14 CrowdChats to see some pretty great conversations and some of the topics we discussed.

This will be fun! We hope you are looking forward to it as much as we are - See you on the 27th!
