The Nuclear Regulatory Commission said it is expanding its social media program by launching a pilot study of a live discussion platform called NRC Chat. The first "chat" is scheduled for April 30 (today) at 2 p.m., Eastern time.

Each chat will focus on a specific topic, with a NRC expert responding to questions. The topic for today's session will be the history of U.S. nuclear power and will feature Tom Wellock, the NRC’s historian.

A six-month schedule will be posted on the chat site, the NRC said. Reminders for each session will also be sent via Twitter. The commission said it expects to host two chat sessions each month. After six months, the chat platform will be evaluated. All chats will be archived, the NRC said.
