OttawaStart will be hosting an Ottawa election Twitter chat ( #ottvotechat ) on Tuesday, September 23 starting at 9:00pm in the evening.
Here’s how it works:
* A Twitter chat is is a focused conversation about a specific topic or issue. All the tweets use a common hashtag, in this case [ #ottvotechat ](https://twitter.com/search?q=%23ottvotechat&src=typd) * Every few minutes, OttawaStart's editor [ Glen Gower ](http://twitter.com/glengower) will post a series of questions about the election and election issues. For example, _ "Q1: Have you decided who to vote for yet? #ottvotechat" _ * Anyone on Twitter can answer the questions, using the format _ "A1: Your answer here" _ and the hashtag [ #ottvotechat ](https://twitter.com/search?q=%23ottvotechat&src=typd) . We'll retweet the most interesting and insightful comments received. * The chat will officially last about 90 minutes, but will probably keep going for a while. * We're hoping to get ** residents ** involved in the chat, rather than candidates. Candidates have plenty of opportunities to debate the issues. ** For #ottvotechat, we'd like to hear from regular citizens about what they think about the election process and local issues. ** * Even if you're not on Twitter, [ you can see what people are saying here ](https://twitter.com/search?q=%23ottvotechat&src=typd) .
