What is a Twitter Chat?

A group of people all sharing the same hashtag determine a time and date to discuss a certain topic. The moderator usually asks the questions and helps keep the conversation flowing. Most chats last about an hour, and for the most part, feel like they fly by!

Everyone starts somewhere! Lurking on a chat is a great way to follow and learn along without feeling the need to participate. On any given chat, there are plenty of people reading/learning alongside the participants without anyone knowing.

When Lurking you need to know:

-The time and day of the chat

-The Hashtag of the chat


Thankfully there are many options today to help you follow and participate in chats! Here are just a few that you can use to help you manage a chat.




When participating make sure:

-You follow the format of the chat (Q1/A1)

-Always include the hashtag for that session

-Read and comment others!


Before you decided you're going to lead a chat there are a few things you need to consider:

-Know your who and why.

- Date, time, and occurrence of your chat.

- Hashtags matter!

- Promote, promote, promote!

- Create a plan. (click here to see an example)
