MY THOUGHTS ABOUT CREATING A TWITTER CHAT
Everything you do in marketing needs to have a reason and hosting a Twitter chat is no different, although it may seem daunting at first if your reason for hosting this event is strong enough you will find the learning curve relatively simple. the other big benefit is that you don’t need any outside software to get going and its FREE.
 
Set a time and date and run a test campaign in your office or with friends, maybe when you’re all watching a football match or some other event where its great to voice your opinions on what’s happening.
