Michele Payn Knoper has started a Twitter chat (tweetchat) for people in agriculture. The chat will take place every Tuesday 8-10PM Eastern and it will allow people in the industry to chat about issues and ideas in real time on Twitter. Have I mentioned to everyone that I love twitter. This is a great way for people in the industry to use interfaces like twitter to network and make new connections in the same industry. This is something that twitter does very well which facebook does not really provide.
Make sure you get a twitter account which is free and then go to the tweetchat url link above. Type in #agchat in the topic and presto you are involved. Be sure to tag each tweet with #agchat so that it shows up properly within the chat page. On another note, for all of you regular twitter users remember to tag all your agricultural based tweets with #farm.
