Barnes or Ewing? Facebook or Twitter? We’ll Decide April 4

Cliff Barnes, Dallas, J.R. Ewing, Ken Kercheval, Larry Hagman

Mice and men

Dallas Decoder’s next #DallasChat will be Monday, April 4, from 8 to 9 p.m. Eastern time.

Our theme will be “Barnes vs. Ewing,” but this chat will be a little different than usual: I’ll post the same questions simultaneously on Twitter and Facebook. Hopefully this will give Facebook fans who don’t have Twitter accounts an opportunity to join the #DallasChat fun.

If you want to participate on Twitter, the rules are the same: I’ll tweet 10 questions from my Twitter handle, @DallasDecoder. You’re encouraged to respond to each question and comment on other fans’ answers, continuing our long tradition of freewheeling group discussions.

If you want to participate on Facebook, here’s how it will work: At 8 p.m. Eastern time, I’ll post a special #DallasChat image on my Dallas Decoder Facebook page. I’ll ask 10 questions throughout the next hour under this image; you can post your answers in the same space.

Here’s a sample exchange:

Q1. Do you think J.R., deep down, admired Cliff’s tenacity? #DallasChat

A1. No. The only deeply held feeling J.R. had toward Cliff is hatred. #DallasChat

Here are three more tips:

• Each #DallasChat question is numbered (Q1, Q2, etc.), so your responses should include the corresponding number (A1, A2, etc.).

• Include the hashtag #DallasChat in all your replies and other comments.

• During the discussion on Twitter, enter #DallasChat in the search field. This will help you watch the search results so you can follow the conversation. Click “All” to see all the related tweets.

If nothing else, this chat should be an interesting experiment. I hope you can participate!
