#wjchat: Five years of thank you
It’s crazy to think that every Wednesday for the past five years, the Web/Digital community has come together for 90 minutes on Twitter to talk about their craft, sharing their knowledge and experiences.
The most important thing I cherish about #wjchat is the community.
I am grateful to be a part of it.
The next important thing I cherish is the incredible team of volunteers who, over the years, make this weekly miracle happen, often from behind the scenes.
