This is a great alternative to using ‘Twitter’ as a back channel. A back channel is a conversation that goes on during a workshop, conference or even webinar.

Share that link and then watch the conversation unfold. I often use this at conferences or even workshops for feedback as often not everyone I work with has Twitter.
