Chat hours on Twitter give businesses the opportunity to connect with other businesses or to contribute to a discussion on a specific topic.  Twitter chat hours are a great way to increase awareness of your business, product or service.  They are also a great way to prove your expertise and improve your credibility.  Used correctly, they are a hotbed for referrals back and forth.
