Let’s face it, we all have a Twitter…or at least I would hope you know what a Twitter is. However did you ever hear of a Twitter chat? That was a concept that blew my mind. Social media that actually required you to be social and communicate. This week I had the pleasure of participating in a Twitter chat, in particular #BlogChat created by Mark Collier. Every Sunday, a group of blog enthusiasts answer a question of the week (submitted by those who follow the chat) and by using the hashtag, the conversations starts rolling. Overall it was a great opportunity, I had learned a lot of different blogs to try as well as what an incredible resource Twitter chats are! Below are the tweets I had posted during the chat.
As you can see, I hit the ground running and was on my way to a more experienced Twitter chatter. It’s to be noted that what makes the chat so interesting is how close a community can come together for a cause. Interacting with other participates in this chat was an incredible experience, seen in the following tweets…
I really enjoyed this response to my question. I had never looked at the “letterman” approach so this was an insightful and useful tip that I will use later in my career.
This was hands down the highlight of the chat! When I asked for PR blog recommendations, I was told to check out “Spin Sucks.” This is a blog I already follow and love to read. The blogger of “Spin Sucks,” was tagged in the tweet and she tweeted at me. I felt like it was a celebrity tweeting at me. This was a prime example of how much of a great resource a Twitter chat can be!
