In a world with hundreds of Tweet chats to choose from, there are so many that you can chat practically every day of the week if you want. A Tweet chat is a when a group of people get together at a pre-determined time and date to discuss a specific topic using Twitter. My favorites fall into the categories of social media, marketing, and software tools. How does a Tweet chat work?
Each chat occurs at a regularly scheduled date and time. There is a host or moderator who leads the chat and determines the topic for that week. When participating topic questions are posted, the format “Q1.”, “Q2.”, and so on is used. You can share your answers by replying with “A1.”, A2.” and so forth. Tweet chats are important because they:
- Keep you up to date.
- Allow you to meet and directly interface with industry experts.
- Let you learn about the latest tools & technologies.
- Make it easy for you to engage with your peers.
- Meet new people with similar interests – everytime!
- Did I mention they are free?
I present you with my top 5.
