    Great Panel!

    A couple of us noticed that some of the chat facilitators were tweeting out panel comments “before” they were even spoken.. One of the reasons people like to go to a tweet chat vs “be lectured at” is to be able to participate.

    Often that is being able to share some insight from a panel first, but when the moderator has the text ahead of time it tends to really dampen down the chat on twitter since we can just sit back and let them do it. The same thing happened at MedX – the paid account always beat the crowd and many of us sort of gave up after a while.

    Tonight there were two chats side by side.. MedX and HCLDC and the latter had 3 times the participation (granted 10 people tweeted over 50 times each which also suppresses conversations – there is for example one doc on twitter who types literal transcripts of conferences so the rest of us have stopped participating when she is there )

    In this case maybe my google chat had some minutes long delay but it drove me to the other tweet-up since it “felt like” the difference was that everyone’s voice was heard and no one had special access to information ahead of the crowd.

    Again it was an amazing panel but some of us didn’t feel like it was a genuine social media conversation as much as a talking panel we were watching and it was hard to find a way to really “participate.”
