AED Twitter Chats - Join the Conversation!
If you’re not a Twitter-user or you can’t join a “live” chat, you can still take in all the information—at your own pace—by visiting our past Twitter chats section.
“Night Eating Syndrome”
Friday, August 1
1:00 p.m. ET
Find your converted time here.
with Jennifer Lundgren
Join the AED chat on Night Eating Syndrome (NES) with Jenny Lundgren, PhD, FAED, co-author of the book, Night Eating Syndrome Research, Assessment, and Treatment. We’ll discuss NES, evidence-based treatment guidelines, clinical tools, how basic science can inform clinical practice and more. Mark your calendars and plan to join the conversation on August 1.
Dr. Lundgren is a Fellow of the Academy for Eating Disorders and of the Obesity Society and also Associate Professor and Chair of the Department of Psychology at the University of Missouri - Kansas City. She is co-author (with Kelly Allison, Albert Stunkard, and foreword by James Mitchell) of Night Eating Syndrome Research, Assessment, and Treatment, published by Guilford Press.
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.
