Join us for a tweetchat featuring carer and provider perspectives on upholding the important healthcare rights of individuals with eating disorders. This #AEDchat is being hosted by the AED Social Media Committee and the Patient-Carer Committee.


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: ("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 #WeDoAct tweets.

Note: Twubs will automatically add the #WeDoAct 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).
