WH A T IS A TWEETCH A T ?

A Tweetchat (sometimes known as a Twitter Chat) is a live event where a group of Twitter users come together to discuss a predetermined topic. To sift through all of the world’s tweets a designated hashtag (#) is used for each tweet contributed to the conversation. Each chat has a set start time, time limit, and a host that moderates. The moderator asks questions to prompt responses from the participants and helps get the conversation moving along. Cues are usually used such as T1, T2, and T3 for topics or Q1, Q2, and Q3 for questions 1 through 3 to provide context and clarity to both questions and responses. To participate in the chat, just include the hashtag in your tweet. Using the 'Latest' feature on Twitter or websites such as tchat.io can help by filtering out all other tweets so you can focus on discussing one topic and it automatically adds the hashtag to your tweets.
