#DisabilitySocial Twitter Chat

Our upcoming Twitter chat aims to help fight isolation.

On November 7th at 6:30pm EST, Easterseals Thrive is hosting a Twitter chat on the power of online communities, and how these virtual interactions help fight isolation – especially during the holiday season.

Participating is easy. Make sure you are following us at @ability2thrive on Twitter, and visit our profile page at the specified date and time.

We’ll be tweeting a question every few minutes, and you can reply to our tweets with your answers. Make sure to include the #DisabilitySocial hashtag so the other participants can read and respond to you.

Here are the questions:

  • What are your plans for the holidays? Are they different every year?
  • What makes online communities good for disabled people?
  • What are some difficult things for disabled people during the holidays?
  • What platforms do you use to connect virtually with friends or family?
  • Do you think society devalues online communities and friendships? Why or why not?
  • How does society and lack of accessibility lead to isolation?
  • How can we work through feelings of isolation when/if we can’t get online regularly?
  • What’s one thing a friend or family member has done to make you feel more included?

Feel free to respond to anyone else as well! The format is pretty relaxed.

Hope to see you there!
