The IBD Social Circle is hosting a twitter chat on Monday, October 16th at 8pm ET.
The topic for this chat is Intimacy and Dating with IBD.
I, Dan Sharp, will be hosting this chat alongside patient advocate Sara Ringer of Inflamed & Untamed and sex educator Kait Scalisi, MPH of Passion by Kait.
Your individual experiences, insights, and questions are important and valuable, so please join the chat and share them with us! Patients, loved ones, caregivers, friends, family, significant others, healthcare providers, etc, are all welcome!
Use #ibdsc to join the chat. See below for more information on how to get involved!
To join a twitter chat, you have to follow its hashtag, and include the hashtag in your tweets. IBD Social Circle chats use #ibdsc. You can follow #ibdsc from within twitter, or by using another site such as Tweetchat or Tweetdeck, or an app such as Tweeten.
An advantage of Tweetchat is that it adds the hashtag to every tweet automatically. Tweetdeck (tweetdeck.twitter.com) is very useful in that it allows you to follow multiple columns of tweets based on filters you setup. Tweeten offers a very nice desktop app version of Tweetdeck, which I would highly recommend trying out. Whichever website or app you plan to use for the chat, give yourself plenty of time to learn how it works before the chat begins.
