The top 13 Twitter Chats for B2B professionals

Last updated on October 6th, 2015 at 04:08 pm

We can all glean B2B insight and advice from news networks (ahem, thanks for visiting us), white papers, blogs and books, but with the ubiquity of social media comes a heralded medium of B2B wisdom: The Twitter Chat.

A Twitter Chat is when a group of Twitter users gather online at a predetermined time to discuss a particular topic, such as, for example, digital marketing. They use a specific hashtag and a moderator prompts the discussion with questions (Q1, Q2, Q3…), which people then answer (A1, A2, A3…) Think of it as a business networking event, but without the dress code or having to leave your desk.

And so we present…

How to participate in a Twitter Chat

You can simply follow the hashtag in your favourite Twitter client, through Twitter’s web portal, or you can use a chat client like TweetChat or Tchat.io.

It’s also important to ensure you get a reminder for Twitter Chats of interest, which you can set personally or find out if some Chats offer email reminders.

Follow the Chat Salad Twitter account for updates on all the latest tweet chats.

Remember to list the answer to which you are replying, such as prefacing your tweet with A1 if you’re answering Q1. Another tip is to space out your replies, so you aren’t dominating the conversation. Allow some time between replies.

What other chats would you add to the list?

Let us know in the comments or via Twitter (of course) over @b2bnewsnetwork!
