What's a Twitter chat? How's it work?
A Twitter chat is a moderated conversation that offers folks from across the world the chance to tune in on Twitter by following a particular hashtag -- in this case, the #CareXGens hashtag. The chat will last one hour with the moderator presenting new questions to the group throughout the conversation. The featured speakers will have a chance to answer questions from other folks in the chat in addition to the ones posed by the moderator.
During the chat, participants will have the chance to engage in a discussion about how Caring Across Generations can transform our economy for the 99%. In these challenging economic times, when so many Americans are struggling to make ends meet and a senior turns 65 every 8 seconds, Caring Across Generations offers a bold plan to transform our economy. The plan will create 2 million new care jobs, provide training and support for care workers, and address not only the growing need for home care workers in our country, but provide family-supporting jobs for millions of people.
The chat will be a great opportunity for folks from all over the world to engage in a dialogue about transforming our economy to meet the needs of the 99% with two of the leading voices in the national conversation on the subject. Participants, bloggers, and the media can tune in to the chat to learn more about Caring Across Generations and the plan to create 2 million new care jobs.
