bufferchatOn Wednesday, June 11, we kicked off a new weekly Twitter chat called #Bufferchat.

In the past, our COO, Leo, hosted #toolschat and found great advice and tools through those Twitter chats. It was definitely time to bring back a Buffer-hosted Twitter chat, and our goal behind #Bufferchat is to further bind our incredible community and create amazing, helpful discussions. We’re aiming to do this weekly and explore a variety of topics that will help all Buffer fans and users!

This week’s focus was on productivity—a favorite topic of ours at Buffer. We were blown away by the response of our amazing fans and all the incredible information that was shared!

For all things #bufferchat: Visit the #bufferchat home page for recaps, roundups, and the upcoming schedule!

Here are some of the highlights:

Community Champion at Buffer 🙂 When I’m not connecting with amazing community members, you can find me writing, reading or blogging about my urban homesteading adventures with 15 chickens, four ducks, two dogs and a horse.

    Ironically enough….Reading this just reminded me that I still need to eat lunch today…!

    • NicoleMillerbooks

      Love that! 🙂

  • Great extensive list here – just checked them all out (yes it took a while) – put ‘coffitivity’ out on Twitter and a follower shot back straight way with a recommendation for http://www.noisli.com which combines colours and sounds – I’ve had a look at it and it looks great – so adding it here

    Thanks for another great piece of content buffer

    • NicoleMillerbooks

      Thank you so much! 🙂 It is a long list! Way to go for checking them all out! And thanks for the tip on Noisli! 🙂

    • Dionne this was a great chat and I agree great list… I am going to check out that new one!

  • Pomodori are working well for me lately, as much for limiting how much time I spend on something as for making sure I keep working steadily.
    Glad to see coffee and tea included . . . I would add fizzy water and of course, white wine, when the time is right 🙂
    Very much enjoying your blog!

  • Thanks to share a long list of productivity tools, I am not using most of the tools because most of the tools are new for me.

  • Wow, so glad to have been part of the first #bufferchat, and even more thrilled that I got featured in the recap! Very cool! Thanks!
