Tech Tuesday Live Twitter Chat

If you’re headed to college this fall, there’s one good thing to learn before you leave – how to stay in touch while you’re away. Students often are multiple hours away from their friends and families while they’re in school; sometimes they are halfway around the world. It can be a real challenge to stay in touch. Luckily there are so many more solutions for staying constantly in contact like chatting via webcam on Skype.

This week Microsoft Hardware are going to join us for a live Twitter chat to share the best ways and the best tools for staying in touch when you are away from home. While the chat is geared towards students, this is great advice for anyone who travels. Not to mention, you can enter to win one of three 60 minute Skype credits paired with a Microsoft Hardware LifeCam Studio webcam for answering questions 1-4 in the chat.
