How does a Twitter Party work?
Ruth has a good explanation here, but I'll try to summarize it, too. Basically, it's a chat on Twitter.
At the designated times, the panelists will make sure to be on Twitter and we're going to be answering questions about food allergies. If you have a question, send out your tweet (you'll need that Twitter account--it's free!) and be sure to put "#foodallergy" somewhere in your message. You can follow along with the chat by searching the hashtag--my iPhone twitter program will do this, and there are lots of online sites that help you do this easily, too (here's one).
So what's your food allergy question? Need advice for navigating restaurants and schools? How to talk to family and friends? Thoughts about reading labels? Wondering how to use an Epi-pen? Wondering what to talk to your allergist about? Are you or your loved one newly diagnosed or an old hand at this?
Come and ask your question, chat, learn, and get support from some of the best food allergy bloggers and twitterers I know! You can't find such a supportive, kind, knowledgeable group of advocates for improving the lives of those with food allergies in one place.
What a great idea for Food Allergy Awareness Week. Thanks Ruth and Jennifer B for planning this party! I'm honored to be participating as a panelist.
