Tools To Create A Successful Tweet Chat

August 1, 2012
Twitter?is a social networking site where you can find your community and engage with people from all around the world through text-based messages. The conversations that take place on the platform are referred to as a tweet chat. These may be between only two users or within a group, as with a Twitter party. If you're unsure where to start when it comes to choosing a hashtag to follow, our very own HASHTAG CHAT page is a great place to get yourself familiar with the community.

How to Follow Interesting Topics Only

1. Look for the Hashtag to Classify

A hashtag?is easily identifiable because it has the '#' before the name, statement or abbreviation. Tweet chats are then categorized according to the hashtags and allow you to follow other people on the site who shares the same hashtag or topic. Individuals can then easily find the specific topic or conversation that interests them the most and can get the information they need.

2. Find a Tool for Twitter Chat

Beginners might notice how the feeds and tweets tend to be very random when they start following different people. One of the main objectives is to eliminate unrelated tweets, also known as Twitter noise. There are different chat tools for the website that will keep you updated with the latest tweets that actually interest you. These will effectively get rid of tweets that do not relate well with your particular interests and you won?t miss the conversations of topics that you need. Here's a video the Hashtags.org team prepared on Understanding A Hashtag Chat?and other tools you can use to enrich your Twitter experience.
