TweetchatWhat’s a Tweetchat? And why should you care?

For all of you green social media users, Tweetchats are:

  • Virtual meetings held on Twitter
  • A draw for people with similar interests
  • Generally held at a fixed day and time, often repeating over a week or month
  • Identified by a hashtag  – a word prepended with a pound sign (#likethis)

The conversational element associated with social media is the real value that sites like Facebook, Google+ and Twitter provide to businesses. Each conversation happening in the social sphere can give insight and intelligence that can be used to improve a company’s product offering, brand image, or sales strategy.

Social also fosters publicity and can help your organization expand its reach and exposure. Hosting Tweetchats is a new opportunity to help you develop an audience, gain new clients, win new customers and greatly increase your social media visibility.
