It’s easy to forget your favourite Twitter chat hours.  Because we’d hate you to miss #OxHour, we’ve set up an email reminder system.  Once a week (around 5pm on a Wednesday), you will receive a text email reminding you to join in #OxHour, and telling you what the week’s topics are.  It’s as easy as that.  There’s no advertising or spamming – we just send you a weekly reminder.  All you have to do is sign up for your #OxHour reminders here.

However, please be aware this stream only shows a selection of the #OxHour tweets.  To take part fully, you will need to use or your usual Twitter app.
