Default #AndroidChat - Twitter Chat

First off, hello. Next, this is the thread about #AndroidChat, please take the time to read this.
I know there are a lot of IRC chats and such but this is a Twitter chat, and why not...

So I have noticed that there are a lot of good Twitter chats that happen and are listed here.

I also noticed that Android doesn't have a chat for itself.

It does now.
#AndroidChat is the hashtag for it.
It will happen on Wednesday of each week at 8 or 9PM EST and run until at least 10PM.
The time and day are up for debate.

Whether you are an new Android user, a seasoned developer for Android, ROM chef or anything in between; this is the place to be if you want to talk about Android.
Below this you can read all about Twitter chats and such as some background information.
I hope to see you there!

What is a Twitter chat?
Twitter chats are scheduled gatherings of people on Twitter to discuss pretty much anything that interests them, using a #hashtag to keep track of the conversation. There are chats for everything from blogging to art to agriculture to operating systems. - Partially/Mostly from Mashable.

How to take part?
I recommend you using TweetChat, it is a service that allows you to view and tweet with your chosen Twitter chat from there. It will also automatically add the hashtag at the end so you don't forget to either.
Basically, it is a service that just makes it really easy to participate in Twitter chats.
But you are free to even do a search on Twitter's website for it and follow it there to.

When do they happen?
Refer to the first link posted in this thread.

Also, I will likely be getting in touch with some influential Android users in this community to help get it started.

If you have any other questions, you can tweet at me or post your question regarding this here.

Thanks,
Lawrence (TheVakman)

So what happened -- did this never get off the ground?

I saw it on the spreadsheet and just hopped on to join, and it's dead quiet in there...

Yeah, I simply don't have the influence within the Android community and nor on these forums themselves to get it going without some others.

I would have liked to but there were a grand total of three people a couple times, including myself. Perhaps when I have a larger team at Gadgico and it has been around for longer, we can start things like this.

Plus, Android developers like IRC chat as do a lot of Android users on these forums.
