Twitter Chats (or Parties) are held regularly, at the same time each day or week and are generally an hour long aimed at a group of people with a shared interest or location. Essentially it’s a conversation where the common hashtag allows everyone to follow the conversation and join in.
Many media or social media agencies publish lists of Twitter Chat hashtags with days and times so you can pick the most relevant and make a note to join in the next one. Just wait for the specified time, type the hashtag into the search bar at the top and you’re ready to join in the conversation.
The list I use is managed by media agency, Space & Time, and is updated regularly so it’s worth bookmarking and checking back occasionally in case a new, relevant Twitter Chat has been listed.
But what’s the point and what’s in it for you or your business?
If you fancy getting started on a Twitter Chat, why not join other local businesses on #FleetHour – we’re a friendly bunch, especially if you bring #JaffaCakes!
And if you are already involved in any great Twitter Chats, post the details as a comment and perhaps I'll see you there!
