WHY: Windows XP support ends in April 2014, at which time any remaining XP deployments can leave organizations at risk for compliance violations, security vulnerabilities and undesired support costs associated with user satisfaction and productivity.  This Twitter Chat is designed to help address important questions and challenges IT is currently mitigating, while offering industry insight and solutions to move toward successful implementations.

What is #vEUCchat?

#vEUCchat is an online Twitter chat that will be happening on March 26, 2013 at 6a & 9a PT. The topic is Windows 7 Migration. Everyone is welcome to join.

 How to #vEUCchat?

If this is your first time participating in a Twitter chat, you can use Tweetchat to help you easily follow the conversation.  Enter in our hashtag #vEUCchat to see only this specific chat stream (after signing in, it will ask you to authorize Tweetchat to use your Twitter account).  Then you are ready to go and post your thoughts in the text bar to be added to the action.  If you’re a more advanced user, you can also use tools like HootSuite, TweetDeck, or TweetGrid, to filter for all posts marked #vEUCchat.

If you are planning to take part through just the standard Twitter site, please remember to add the hash #vEUCchat to your tweets so your comments aren’t overlooked by mistake.

GET READY! It’s a fast-paced conversation with 140 characters or less at a time. Every 10 minutes the moderator will pose a new question. It’s not necessary for you to answer/comment on every question, but it’s a terrific way to get a variety of perspectives and to keep the conversation moving.

Technical Steps for Participation 

  1. Your first tweet should include your name, title, company you work for, and hashtag #vEUCchat
  2. Subsequent tweets should start with the question number you are responding to and include the #vEUCchat hashtag. For example, “@VMwareMirage A2: Agreed, mobile is the next big thing! #vEUCchat
  3. Be yourself and please do not push your product during the conversation.
  4. Use common sense and don’t say things that might come back to hurt you or your business.
  5. Be nice to your fellow tweeters

 Chat Tips

  1. Don’t worry about catching and reading every tweet.  Find the ones that most speak to you and go from there.
  2. Remember that your tweets go to all your Twitter followers unless you DM someone (to DM someone, they have to be following you).
  3. Try to tweet complete thoughts whenever possible- this will help followers outside the chat learn from you.
  4. Consider sending out a tweet in advance letting your followers know that you’re participating in this Twitter Chat.  It is a courtesy to let them know when you’ll be on rapid-fire and might encourage them to take part in the convo with you.
