Social Media Twitter Chats List

twitter-chatTwitter chats are hot, Hot, HOT!

There’s pretty much a “tweetchat” in any niche you can imagine or on any topic. If there isn’t one in your particular niche, maybe YOU should be hosting your own Twitter chat (more on that below).

For those of you who are looking of ways to build your Twitter following, participating in Twitter chats are a great way to do it. You have a group of people talking about a subject you like, want to connect on, share in common with. It’s a natural way to gain new followers.

Not only are Twitter chats full of people excited to talk about a particular topic, they’re held at the same time and day each week. They’re a hyper-targeted, real time opportunity to meet new people, develop new connections, and these chats give the opportunity to position yourself as an authority in that niche over time as you participate and provide value to the community. Twitter chats are often a Q&A format, led by (moderated) one or more people, anywhere from thirty minutes to an hour.

Not only are they a great way to meet new people and expand your follower base, it’s an awesome way to connect with like-minded people and individuals who’ve established themselves as an authority within that niche or industry which I personally think is even more important than how many people are following you…but that’s just me.

*Pro tip – just in case you don’t know, one of the best tools to participate in a “tweet chat” is to go to Tweetchat.com. It is far and away my favorite. There are other people out there who dig on Tweetgrid.com too.

You can find a huge list of Twitter chats out there, just hit Google and type “Twitter Chat Schedule” and viola…you might find more than you want to know. :)

We’ll focus this post on some great chats I’ve personally enjoyed based around social media.

A great resource on how to host/manage your own Twitter chat, is 5 Steps to Hosting a Successful Twitter Chat or the one that Mack Collier of #blogchat fame put together, 10 Steps To Creating A Successful Twitter Chat or even the one on Mashable.
