So a while back I stumbled upon a Twitter chat using the hashtag #RPGLifeUK
Curiousity got the better (?) of me and I started to interact with the chat and found myself amongst fellow hobbyists with a particular interest in Roleplaying Games.
Now that’s not really a surprise. What was a surprise though was how easy I found the conversation to interact with.
Backtrack a little…
Twitter has never really worked for me. As a medium for conversation I’ve mostly used it to promote ENT and for direct messages. Very rarely have I found it conducive to conversation.
A large part of that is because I don’t usually access social media during office hours, not because it’s banned or anything, moreso because when I’m at work I’m almost always in “work mode”. So my Twitter use was and still is largely binge based at night when I settle down post work and post family stuff.
Anyway, as I said I discovered #RPGLifeUK and for reasons unknown I decided to make a suggestion.
Has @symatt or anyone thought of hosting a #rpglifeuk discussion “in real time” at a con? Sunday 11-12 at UK Games Expo suits me.

So, if you’re going to be at the Hilton at 8pm on Thursday 2nd of June and fancy chatting about RPGs with some random Twitter folks then let +sy matt or myself know.
See you there! I’ll be the one in the geek t-shirt. Oh wait…
