As I prepare for the launch of the podcast, Online Course Connections, I have registered a hashtag in twubs.com that we can use to keep the conversations going. If you have a comment to share or a question to ask, you can include #VJCourses in your tweet on Twitter and I’ll be able to readily find your tweet.
The use of a hashtag in your tweet is the foundation for creating a Twitter chat, and it also simply let’s people easily search on the topic of your tweet.

3 Ways to Find Tweets That Contain a Certain Hashtag:
- Do a search in Twitter for the hashtag, #VJCourses (or whatever hashtag you’d like to be following)
- Open a web service such as twitterfall.com or twubs.com and enter the hashtag you’re interested in following. (I like to do this while attending a conference. You can watch all of the tweets going out that include the hashtag assigned to the conference. It’s a way of connecting with other people at the conference whom you might not meet otherwise.) Here’s one of my archived Periscope broadcasts where I demonstrate the use of Twitterfall. (If the embedded video isn’t showing for you, please click here.
