The Identity Theft Resource Center already spends more time on Twitter than they would like to admit, so they have decided to go ahead and make it official and begin a weekly identity theft twitter chat.
It is the hope of the ITRC that this will help people involved and interested in identity theft connect with one another. Whether those involved are organizations working on identity theft issues, victims of the crime or service providers, these conversations have shown to produce wonderful ideas. The ITRC is sure the weekly identity theft chat will do just that.
The first identity theft twitter chat will take place on Thursday, December 6. Those who would like to participate can RSVP via online invitation. The ITRC will be hosting the identity theft twitter chat every week on Thursday at 11am PST.
Questions will change every week. The December 6th questions are as follows:
- Q1: What do you think is the best way to protect against ID Theft?
- Q2: Who do you think is the most vulnerable to ID Theft right now?
- Q3: Have you ever been a victim of ID Theft? What happened?
- Q4: Would you know what to do if you become a victim of ID Theft?
Following each weekly identity theft twitter chat, users will be able to suggest questions for the next week’s event.
In order to participate, users should follow the hashtag #IDTheftChat and include it in all of their responses. The ITRC hopes that everyone with interest in the issue of identity theft is as excited as we are and that this weekly event will help centralize twitter talk regarding identity theft.
This weekly event should also help produce great collaborative thought and perhaps even some unique and novel solutions. Other entities which are interested in becoming a guest host for a weekly chat can contact ITRC’s Social Media Manager at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We hope you will join the conversation and bring your friends!
