What is a twitter chat?
“Twitter chats are an engaging and novel way to expand your professional learning network. Like webinars and workshops, Twitter chats are scheduled for a specific date and time, and focus on a certain topic. Using a unique hashtag, users can follow discussions and comments around the designated topic. A moderator often helps lead a discussion and asks questions.” 5 Great Twitter Chats for Educators
