How do I participate in #BFrunning?

Via Twitter

Visit Twitter.com and search for #BFrunning.

BFrunning Twitter Search

Save your search and go to your Home feed. Click on the Searches tab and choose #BFrunning. Begin typing under What’s Happening. Don’t forget to add #BFrunning to each post.

BFrunning Twitter Page

Via Tweetchat

Visit Tweetchat.com, login using your Twitter account, and type BFrunning next to the # at the top of the page. Very cool because it appends #BFrunning to the end of your posts, so you don’t have to remember to add the tag yourself. I’m awful at remembering to add tags, particularly during a conversation (replies, retweets, etc.), so I appreciate this option.

Via Twebevent

Twebevent.com integrates Tweetchat, but it offers additional chat-specific information and it includes a calendar of events. Login using your Twitter account and visit the main page to view the calendar.

Via Hootsuite, Tweetdeck, or similar platforms

During a chat, I have both Tweetchat and Hootsuite open.  I use Hootsuite to track mentions and conversations because chats often move too quickly to keep track of them via Twitter or Tweetchat.

A complete list of scheduled chats can be found in this google document and more info on twitter chats can be found here.
