Do you know what a Tweet Chat is?
Tweet chats are live discussions that take place on Twitter about a predetermined topic. Tweets related to the discussion are marked with a hashtag (a word or phrase preceded by the # sign; an example is #DowntownSebring).
Tweet chats are a great forum for small businesses and organizations to learn from people in their industry and to collaborate with their peers. They’re also a way for you to promote what you do by offering advice and sharing your expertise on a topic. Click here for 5 tips on how to participate in a Tweet Chat!
