#GeniusHour Chat Archive

On the first Thursday of each month we have our Genius Hour chat on twitter! You can follow along/join the conversation by watching the livestream of the #geniushour hashtag.

There are several ways to do this: directly on twitter (click here), or use an external app like tweetchat.com, hootsuite, etc.
Join us at 9 pm eastern/6 pm pacific on the 1st Thursday of each month!
