#CollabTalk TweetJam "The Need for Community Management and Governance"

#CollabTalk TweetJam January 2021

Today Christian Buckley kicked off 2021 with the first TweetJam of the year discussing community management and governance. If you’ve never participated in a TweetJam, it’s intense. 50-70 panelists take a list of 7 questions and discuss in a feeding frenzy I can only equate to throwing chum into shark-infested waters. It’s glorious!

I started doing TweetJams last year – this is only my 3rd, I think. Why do I do it? I LOVE learning from the community. I love sharing what I think on the subject. And mostly, I love the interaction with the other community members.

One thing about Tweets – if you aren’t “in” on Twitter, they’re short. Currently, Twitter restricts comments to 280 characters and, where URLs are present, using URL shortening to help get the most out of this limited space. If you jump into the conversation, you may see “(1/2)” in a post, that means that user needed more than 280 characters, so check out that person’s Twitter stream to see the rest of the message.

The Need for Community Management and Governance

Today’s topic provided 7 questions on the need for community management and governance. Also, important to note, that while this is a Microsoft-driven community, only one question was specific to them.

Below are my answers to these questions, and a few of my favorites from the community (way too many to share them all!). I welcome your feedback either in the comments or on Twitter! But if you do join us on Twitter make sure you follow the rules!! Use #CollabTalk A$ where $ is the question number (e.g., “#CollabTalk A3”).
