Twitter Chats are the best occasion to catch up with your peers on Twitter, make new connections and get the newest nonprofit or technology buzz fast. Twitter Chats are events scheduled and conducted mostly for one hour on Twitter, using a specific #hashtag and a topic.
In this session you will learn how you can successfully participate in a Twitter chat and also how to prepare yourself to be a Twitterchat facilitator.
We will review various examples of active, regularly scheduled Twitter chats in the nonprofit field, for instance #fundchat #storymaker2014 and #npmc
We also discuss 3rd Party Tools that help you keep pace with the conversation and to curate the best-of-chat tweets and resources.
