By Shannon Abram, Relationship Manager at The Community Roundtable.
A few months ago when I posted this interview with some of our favorite twitter chat organizers I never thought I’d be making this announcement, but am thrilled to be able to do so. Starting in October the team at TheCR will be taking over stewardship of the very popular twitter chat focused on ESN (Enterprise Social Network) challenges and issues – #ESNchat. #ESNchat was founded by a member of TheCR Network – the wonderful Jeff Ross.
When Jeff approached us about taking over #ESNchat we were surprised – and excited. Jeff has done an amazing job of creating a vibrant, engaged community of ESN professionals. Ultimately, #ESNchat is a passion project for Jeff – that is clear to anyone that interacts with him. Without his enthusiasm, hard work and good humor there would be no #ESNchat. You can read Jeff’s formal announcement about this change here – and you can be sure Jeff won’t be far away. We’ve already got plans to feature him for several upcoming chats!
So – you might be asking “What does this mean for me?” – and the answer is: almost nothing. #ESNchat will continue to run under the current hashtag and twitter handle (@esnchat) at its current time – 2pm ET on Thursdays. Jeff’s last chat as host will be next Thursday, but he’ll continue to be active as the founder and a frequent participant, helping us make sure we’re providing the most relevant and compelling content for you weekly.
In the meantime, we’d love to hear ideas you might have for future topics or if you’d like to guest host. We’ll announce the Fall topic schedule in early October so please let us know what topics would be most interesting for you in the comments. We look forward to seeing you Thursdays at 2pm ET and will work hard to shepherd Jeff’s vision.
Finally – we can’t thank Jeff enough for trusting us with his creation. We know #ESNchat means a lot to a lot of community professionals and we will work hard to live up the #ESNchat name!
