Twitter is a hub for influential people – including authorities on SEO, social media and online marketing. The difficult part is separating the valuable messages from self-promotion.
One way to cut through the noise and get to the good stuff is to find and participate in Twitter chats that are relevant to your industry.
Twitter chats use specific hashtags and a specific time period to hold a discussion, normally led by an organizer who posts questions to prompt answers from the community.
Twitter chats occur for almost any topic you can think of – in fact, there are so many that it’s often difficult to keep up.
That’s why we created our Ultimate List of marketing Twitter chats. Use this resource to connect with valuable marketing discussions on Twitter – and if you know of any chats we missed, be sure to let us know in the comments.
Want to make view Twitter chats easily? Here’s a list of resources to help you follow hashtags during chats. If you’re a Raven customer, you can also set up a Social Monitor search to follow a discussion or multiple hashtags on Twitter.
