#DDChat – Weekly Twitter Chat [Dyslexia, Dyspraxia, Dyscalculia, Dysgraphia]

What is #DDChat?

For almost a year now, I have been hosting a chat on Twitter called #DDChat. It started off as a monthly thing and only discussing dyslexia, but over the months it has developed and become a weekly event where we discuss dyslexia, dyspraxia, dyscalculia and dysgraphia. It’s a very friendly worldwide community of neurodiverse people, experts and support groups.  Read the rest of this entry

The first hour always consists of topic questions with the second hour open for anything Tweeters want to discuss incase there were any pressing topics they wanted to discuss. After a few months it became clear that a monthly chat was not enough!  Read the rest of this entry

#blogging4charity – T is for Twitter

I didn’t see the point of it before but I absolutely LOVE Twitter now. I’ve been using it to advertise this blog of mine, but have found out in the last year just how wonderful Twitter is for interacting with people across the world.

It’s great for raising awareness and for finding like-minded people without being swamped with all the personal details and dramas of Facebook. I can Tweet as often as I like without people kicking off which is great because my short-term memory is so bad that if I don’t get something out of my head then I lose it completely.

But my favourite thing about Twitter is… Twitter chats!  Read the rest of this entry
