Tracing its roots to back to 2010, #treechat has become a weekly tradition each “TreeTuesday” on Twitter. We’ve discussed many great topics over the years and meet some very cool tweeps who care about trees. This week on treechat, we celebrate those who join us each week to share, learn and make the chat one of the best hours on Twitter. This is your chance to get to know an interesting fact about some of the folks who tweet with us.
But giving you the fact about these tree tweeps would be way to easy…we like to talk and share. Listed below are some tweeps on #treechat and it’s up to you to figure out which fact goes with which person. Some are easy and some are down-right, “who’d of thought…??”! So during the 9/11 live chat you’ll have the opportunity to ask.
And did I mention there are prizes involved? You’re goal is to be the 1st to tweet out the person with the fact which is formatted like this example; “@Coronatools #funfact #12 #treechat” If you're missing any of the hastags it may be missed.
Just post the name and the fact number, and the 1st correct tweet recorded gets the point. And the prize? A goodie bag of Corona Tools in time for late-Summer and Fall pruning! Including a Corona Quick Saw, 2 Handed Pruner, Dual Cut bypass pruner and ComfortGEL snips! $125 value! Here's the list of tweeps so start tweeting and getting to know a few folks who care about trees!
