What is a twitter chat?
A Twitter tweet chat is a pre-arranged chat that happens on Twitter through the use of Twitter updates (called tweets) that include a predefined hashtag to link those tweets together in a virtual conversation.
You may see people you know tweeting about using a specific hashtag and using things like Q1, Q2 … and A1, A2… – (Q being the question and A being the answer). Using twitter chats, you can be part of a conversation where ideas are sharing, debated, and challenged depending on the topic.
A popular twitter chat you might see is #satchat, which is where educators use twitter on Saturday mornings to share each others’ thinking in rich conversation.
