I love Twitter. I love (or loved) chatrooms. I love socializing with complete strangers that I may or may not have something in common with. When you put all of this together, you have a Twitter chat. Which explains why I love those, as well.
Let me start out by saying this: every chat on this list is entirely based on my own opinion. There is no way I could make a list like this that was not very subjective. What is interesting for me might be totally dull for another person. I know I have certainly seen a number of Twitter chats that seemed so boring I would rather watch a stranger’s nose hair grow than take part.
That being said, here are my own (totally biased) must-try Twitter chats.
Hosted on Sundays at 2:00 PM CST, this is a great place to go to get critiques, advise and just connect with other writers, both professional and hobbyists. I have seen some incredible tips using this hashtag, including how to go about getting published, improving sentence structure, and beating writer’s block.
Hosted Sundays from 9:00 PM CST to 10:00 PM CST, this is a great chat for people of all ages. It doesn’t center around a certain decade, but instead lets people connect with others that remember the same flashes from the past that they do. Nineties, seventies, fifties…it doesn’t matter, all are welcome!
Hosted Mondays at 10:00 AM EST, this is a place to talk about the every changing landscape of search engine optimization. You won’t find a nicer group of experts around, and the chat is open for people of all levels.
Hosted Mondays from 8:00 PM EST to 9:00 PM EST, this is an excellent tweet chat on the topic of public speaking. Whether you have a school project that will require you to speak in front of a class, or a major presentation that will be given in front of hundreds, this is the place to go for advice. Including techniques on how to get over the common fear of speaking to a crowd.
Hosted the third Thursday of ever month from 3:00 PM EST to 4:00 PM EST, get together with other photography enthusiasts, both on a professional and amateur scale, and discuss all things photo.
