Our May 16 #DallasChat Will Leave You Hanging

Dallas, J.R. Ewing, Larry Hagman, Pam Ewing, Victoria Principal

Legend of the fall

Dallas Decoder’s next #DallasChat on Twitter will be Monday, May 16, from 8 to 9 p.m. Eastern time.

We’ll discuss one of “Dallas’s” greatest traditions — its season-ending cliffhangers — so our theme will be “Hang On, Darlins!”

If you’re new to #DallasChat — or if you need a refresher — here’s how it works: During each hour-long discussion, I tweet 10 questions from my Twitter handle, @DallasDecoder. Fans respond to the questions and comment on each other’s answers, making each chat a fun, freewheeling group conversation.

Here’s a sample exchange:

Q1. Was Pam’s fall in “Dallas’s” first-season finale an accident, or did J.R. push her? #DallasChat

A1. It was definitely an accident. Ol’ J.R. was mean, but he wasn’t that mean. #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 your tweets.

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

I hope you can participate. See you there!
