everything from potholes to voting

A Twitter #SocEntChat and Google Hangout with Tiago Pexoto and Steven

Twitter Chats (#SocEntChats) are real-time Twitter-based discussion
about social entrepreneurship, focused on specific issues, themes, and
events. They are designed to provide a forum for current and aspiring

ideas, discuss the state of the field, identify the latest
innovations, and pinpoint areas that require deeper exploration.
