Step 2. Join the conversation
Option 1: Use a specialized site such as tchat.io (highly recommended) to follow the conversation in real-time. Benefits of using tchat.io over a other Twitter apps include automatically adding the #RheumJC hashtag to each of your tweets, filtering out retweets, and real-time updating. An alternative to tchat.io to consider is tweetchat.com.
Once you arrive at one of these sites, simply type in the hashtag #RheumJC, allow the app to access your Twitter account, and you’re all set.
Option 2: Follow the #RheumJC as a saved search in your Twitter client of choice. A few premium Twitter clients such as Tweetbot Mac iPhone iPad have the ability to continually stream when you are connected.
If you’re using Twitter via the web or the official Twitter app Mac iPhone/iPad, you’ll have to continually refresh the search.
Step 3. Introduce yourself and interact. Don’t be shy.
