Did you know that there’s a very dedicated army of acupuncturists regularly getting together on Twitter to promote acupuncture and TCM?
Every Monday at 1:30pm Central (US) and 7:30pm (UK) something magical happens on Twitter with the acupuncture community. A group of like minded individuals get together for a tweetfest called #AcupunctureHour.
If you’ve never participated in a tweetfest, it’s where a bunch of people tweet using the same hashtag. The goal is to get the hashtag trending on Twitter to gain awareness for a cause or topic.
#AcupunctureHour was created as a way to promote acupuncture as well as connect acupuncturists from around the world! It’s also a great breeding ground for practitioners to keep up with their field and to learn from forward thinking acupuncturists in their use of social media and new technology (like Periscope).
