Annie Haven (@GreenSoil) informed me yesterday that she had rights over the use of the #soilchat hash tag. She had registered the name with www.twubs.com two years ago as part of her business plan and branding strategy. After chatting a bit, Annie offered to transfer the registration of #soilchat to me, but with certain conditions.
I slept on it and came to a conclusion. Annie still has attachments to the name (#soilchat); and I don’t want to take that opportunity away from her. I also want to conduct my own tweetup with openness and transparency, and with equal respect to all who attend.
So I am changing the name of my weekly soil tweetup to #groundchat. So please join me and other soil hosts every Friday from 2 – 3 pm EDT (11 am PDT) at the new #groundchat and let’s talk dirt!
