Halloween with food allergies is a big topic and Friday nights 9:30-10:30 pm EST twitter party was a huge success.
Over 60 people RSVPed via our public invitation on Socializr and over 40 individuals participated by tweeting (I stopped counting after that). Those numbers don’t take into account the hundreds of people that likely watched without chatting. (Feel free to join us in tweeting next time!)
We discussed safe candy, parties, schools, 504 plans and a number of other allergy topics.
Following are some tweets from the event:
And the party just kept on going!
Following are some after party comments-keep them coming!
