A few weeks ago I enjoyed my very first Twitter chat, and I absolutely loved it! I found a bunch of new people to follow and found a lot of new information. There are literally hundreds of twitter chats going on in a month but here are some of the ones I have found to be more enjoyable and involved than others. Explorics have written about 7 reasons to become a twitter chat pro.
What usually happens in a Twitter Chat is that there is a "host" - who may differ each time - who poses questions to the group and everyone answers. Pretty simple right? Well try keeping up with hundreds of people tweeting at the same time. I suggest jumping onto a twitter program such as Hootsuite or Tweetdeck to help you manage the chat and not get lost. So, what are the chats I have enjoyed?
This one speaks for itself, it is a chat all about running. It is hosted and there is usually a sponsor each week. I have found this one to be particularly useful for learning tips and tricks about running.
#RunChat Thursdays 7-8pm Central Time (Friday 11am-12 noon Sydney time)
A great chat to join if you have questions about training plans or the best way to train for a certain distance or event. There are trained coaches on hand to help and
Wednesdays 4-5pm Eastern Time (Thursdays 7am-8am Sydney time)
Again another one that speaks for itself, this is on right after Blogchat on a Monday for me, so I don't often get to join but it is fun to read a few of the tweets when I can.
