Twitter Chat: Veterans and the ADA
Mark your calendars! Join the ADA National Network and regional ADA Centers for a 1-hour Twitter Chat on Veterans 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 month will highlight a different topic related to the Americans with Disabilities Act. To learn more, 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?
You can also follow our Twitter chat hashtag #ADANetworkChat on TWUBS or participate in the chat with the app tchat, which lets you pause the chat if the Tweets are coming too fast.
