Public Relations Director
ISHLT Annual Meeting

Stay connected at the ISHLT Annual Meeting this year by following us on Twitter - the real-time information network that connects you to the latest stories, ideas, conversations, opinions and news about what you find interesting.

If you already have a Twitter account, FOLLOW US! (@ISHLT or https://twitter.com/ishlt). To help you stay up-to-date on the latest news and events taking place onsite, we will be tweeting before, during, and after the Annual Meeting in San Diego, using the hashtag #ISHLT2014. (If you don't know what a hashtag is or how to use it, keep reading!)

NOTE: if you don't have a Twitter account, you can still read the conversations posted under the twitter hashtag. (Creating an account will allow you to get real time updates and post your own messages.)

What's a hashtag?
If you see the pound symbol (#) before a word or phrase, it is essentially a keyword tag for the tweet so that others can find it more easily. On Twitter, this is called a hashtag, and they can be serious, to help people search for your tweet (like #advice or #blogging) or funny (like #ImSoDarnTired). Not every tweet needs hashtags. Basically, it's a way to follow the stream of everyone talking about a specific subject. However, you don't want to overuse them-2 or 3 is enough.

How to use our hashtag:

We encourage you to join our online conversation. Please tweet your reactions, comments, and interesting things you learn throughout the daily sessions at the Annual Meeting.

Here are a few Twitter Do's and Don'ts:
