PRSSA Tweet Chat

twitter page

On Tuesday, March 27th, I participated in a Twitter chat with Public Relations Student Society of America (PRSSA). I had just recently joined Twitter for a “Personal Brand Project” for my Principles of Public Relations class. At first, I was quite confused how to navigate around the social networking service. As well, I have been getting use to only having a maximum of 140 characters when I am “tweeting”. However, back to my experience with my Twitter chat. The chat was already pre-arranged and it started at 9 p.m. When, the chat began, I had to use a hashtag (#) which linked me to the conversation. The chat was mainly the PRSSA asking followers five simple questions about how we are involved with PRSSA, what we put on our resumes, how to exchange business cards, and how to find professionals. There were free flowing responses from multiple followers. It was quite interesting to see what everyone had to say. Before the chat, I honestly had no idea how it was going to be conducted. In a way, I was going in to the chat blinded. At the end of the chat, my eyes were opened. Through the tweets and exchange of responses, I found some beneficial tips. I learned that I should be prepared in the case if an opportunity presents itself and that I need to have a resume on me. One may never know when something good is coming their way. After the chat, I felt excited that Public Relations is my major. A year ago, I did not have a clear idea of what I wanted to do professionally and now I am positive public relations is a positive path.
