Attention Stations! NPR Digital Services will be hosting an all-station Twitter chat to explore the Station Analytics System's Analytics Dashboard on Wednesday, March 4th from 3-4 p.m. ET using the #NPRChats tag.

#NPRChats is an informal way for NPR Digital Services to talk with and answer questions from our Member Stations about a different topic or theme each month.

The upcoming March 4th chat will focus on the SAS Analytics Dashboard—one of the most important tools available for evaluating your station’s digital strategy! NPR Digital Service’s own Michelle Bellettiere (@NPRBelle), Digital Analytics Senior Manager, will be joining the chat to answer any questions you may have about Analytics Dashboard features and benefits.

All you have to do to participate is follow and tweet @NPRDS using the hashtag #NPRChats. Please see the Twitter Chat FAQ below for a more comprehensive guide on how to view and participate in the upcoming chat.

If you have any questions that you would like to ask in advance, feel free to tweet @NPRDS using the hashtag #NPRChats or send an email to the moderator anytime prior to the start of the chat!

Tweet Chat FAQ

  What is a Twitter Chat?

A Twitter chat is a conversation about a specific topic, usually at a specific time. There are annual chats about everything from web journalism to agriculture. Organizations often use Twitter to hold one-time chats about specific topics, have Q+A's, discuss news series, and much more.

How do I join in?

Twitter chats are organized around specific hashtags. Our hashtag is #NPRChats. Make sure to include #NPRChats in all your tweets about the chat before, during and after.

I already know what questions I want to ask. Is there any way to ask them before Thursday?

Yes! If you already have ideas you want to discuss or questions you want to make sure are answered tweet them to us at @NPRDS with the #NPRChats hashtag before Thursday, and we will make sure that they are addressed. 

How do I follow a hashtag?

There are several ways to follow a hashtag. (Most of these work from mobile, so you can join from anywhere.)

How do I not annoy my followers when I tweet a lot during a Twitter chat?
