Twitter Chat: Accessibility and the ADA

Event Date/Time: 

Wednesday, June 22nd, 2022
10:00 AM PDT - 11:00 AM PDT




Mark your calendars! Join the ADA National Network and regional ADA Centers for a 1-hour Twitter Chat on Accessibility and the ADA.

What is a Twitter Chat?
Great question! Our Twitter Chats are hour-long question and answer sessions held on Twitter. You can tune in for all or some of the chat. We have everything from specific trivia to open-ended questions and polls. These chats are a great opportunity to connect with other individuals, organizations, and groups in the disability community and get information about common ADA questions. Each chat will highlight a different topic related to the Americans with Disabilities Act. To learn more about Twitter Chats, watch this brief tutorial video: Twitter Chat Basics [3:24 min., CC]. Learn more about How to Participate in Twitter Chats with this ASL video from HEARD.

Do I need a Twitter account to follow along?
You can keep up with the questions and answers on Twitter without making an account. Simply check out our profile @ADANational or search #ADANetworkChat and sort by latest.

Can I participate if I don't have access to Twitter?
Following each Twitter Chat, we share a Twitter Moment which captures the highlights. This allows those who aren't active on Twitter to get the resources from the event without having to follow along live.

How do I add to the discussion?
To tweet you must have a Twitter account. You can tweet your questions and answers about accessibility and the ADA with the hashtag #ADANetworkChat. You can sign up for a free Twitter account, but it isn't required to follow along with this event.
