Most blog posts about Twitter chats are frustrating. They mention very few and don’ t help people participate much. Isn’t that why they came to your blog to read this post in the first place?
List some friggin’ chats. Don’t just give a couple examples.
Name names like mediators or primary contributors if possible — and for the love of all that is efficient, please include their Twitter screen names.
Include a schedule. It can be surprisingly hard to determine when a Twitter chat starts based on just a hashtag search (partly because the discussion might get drawn out, and people might retweet or reply with the hashtag for days after the chat is over).
- Don’t spend the bulk of the post telling us what a chat is. We’re three quarters of the way through 2013!
