TechSoup and NetSquared have joined forces to bring you a September full of social media learning! All month long, we're putting on events and publishing content to sharpen your social media skills. 

As part the fun, we're taking our #SocMedSep tweet chat around the globe — as close as we can get to a 24-hour Twitter party! 

With one-hour chats in Nairobi, San Francisco, New Orleans, Phoenix, Milledgeville, and Naples, you're bound to find one in your own time zone to join. Highlights from the day will be captured and shared with everyone.
