Do you know what a tweet chat is? Also sometimes referred to
as a “Twitter party,” a tweet chat is a live discussion that happens on
Twitter; tweets in the discussion thread are identified by the use of a common
hashtag (for example, #nptech is a common hashtag used to discuss nonprofit technology topics).
Tweet chats are held to bring Twitter users together to have a
discussion on a pre-designated topic, sometimes functioning as a means to
provide online training on a subject.

your Twitter followers with a reason to come together, connect, share, and learn.
