What is a Twitter Chat?
It's a bunch of people on twitter talking about a topic at the same time. You sort out the tweets you want to read by using the shared hashtag. For the lung cancer tweet chat (held every other Thursday at 8 pm Eastern time zone) we use #LCSM. You can also use the #LCSM anytime on twitter, facebook, instagram, and other social media to see the latest buzz about lung cancer.
This coming Thursday, March 9th, the topic will discuss tumor testing and targeted therapies for lung cancer. There is usually a broad audience that includes survivors, caregivers, oncologists, surgeons, nurses, and special guest experts. The LCSM team publishes 4 questions ahead of time, and the guest experts give their answers to the questions, and also address comments and questions from other participants. It moves pretty fast, but it's a lot of fun.
