| | Twitter Chat Anyone?
Been thinking on the tiny-audience problem for a while. Audio Drama. Audio Theatre. Audio Theater. Radio Drama. No matter what you call it, we all face the same problem: building ourselves a larger pool of fish — fish whom we would all prefer to be both familiar with, and eager to consume, the audio stories we produce.
Have also been participating in some regularly scheduled Twitter chats, for authors and publishers of kidlit, and folks involved with book marketing, and I noticed an interesting thing: since all Twitter discussions are public, random people stumble across the conversations when an interesting chat topic "trends" on Twitter. And occasionally, those people transform into fish.
So, I wondered: would there be any point in setting up a regularly-occurring Twitter chat of our own? Perhaps using the #audiodrama hash-tag? Could use this forum to plan the topics of conversation and select individuals to "moderate" each hour-long, real-time chat, focusing on aspects of writing, production, marketing, whatever. I personally would enjoy some real-time conversation with my fellow AD producers. And, it might help spread the word about audiodrama as a medium.
