#QBOchat began in July 2013 with the simple idea to host a weekly Twitter conversation around QuickBooks Online (QBO). We have since grown into a very strong community comprised of a diverse group of users. Our weekly tweet chat is held each Thursday at 3:00PM Eastern. The discussions cover a wide range of topics including QBO’s latest features and updates, business operation tips and apps that integrate with QBO, to name just a few.
These tweet chats have become increasingly popular forums for discussing how QBO can better help businesses grow and thrive. They provide a regular meeting place for QBO users such as small businesses, entrepreneurs, accountants, developers, Intuit employees and anyone who wishes to learn about and discuss this amazing business tool.
As such, it seemed a natural next step to create a more dedicated space for our QBOchatters, and QBOchat.com was born! The website not only provides a vehicle to participate in a live tweet chat, it also houses blog posts, YouTube videos, archived chats and sponsor information. Our goal is to meet all your QBOchat discussion and networking needs in one place. We want this to be an open and collaborative forum, so if you have suggestions for how we can make your QBOchat experience even better, give us a shout!
Still have questions? Maybe these quick FAQs will help…
What is a tweet chat? Originally started on Twitter, a tweet chat is a conversation around a designated topic or common interest with a group during a preset time. It’s like the modern version of chatrooms, except these conversations are done in a public forum like Twitter or, as in this instance, via a specialized website.
How do I join a tweet chat? All you need to join in the conversation is a valid Twitter account. You’ll then need to make sure you use the designated hashtag, in this case #QBOchat, when you tweet, so your comments show up in the conversation stream.
I’m still not 100% on this. Can you recommend articles that can provide a little more insight to help me out? Absolutely! Here are a few we recommend:
