It's easy to join in the #AEDchat! - Try it!
1. Login to Twitter with your Twitter account.*
2. With your Twitter account already running, you'll open up Twubs at: http://twubs.com/AEDchat. ("Twubs" is the site you can login to and use during the chat. It will allow you to participate and watch all the action!)
3. At the bottom of the page, click the Twitter badge that says “Log in with Twitter,” and then click “Authorize app” to allow Twubs to read/send your #AEDchat tweets.
Note: Twubs will automatically add the #AEDchat hashtag at the end of everything you tweet, so no need to do this. However, you will need to check the length of all of your prepared responses to make sure there is room for Twubs to add the #aedchat hashtag at the end (in other words, Twitter allows you 140 characters for each tweet, so you’ll have to subtract eight characters for "#AEDchat" hashtag in order to be under the limit for your tweets).

What exactly is a "Twitter Chat?"
A Twitter chat is a pre-arranged chat that happens on Twitter through the use of Twitter updates (called tweets) that include a hashtag (in our case, #AEDchat) to link those tweets together in a virtual conversation. These Twitter chats are scheduled on a particular day and time to enable participants to join the conversation in real time.
To access eating disorder information via AED’s social media outlets, or for helpful articles on using social media professionally, visit AED's Social Media Page.
