I am always asked for a list of places or events to get involved with like-minded people on Twitter.  A live meet up coordinated through Twitter is called a “Tweet Up,” but a virtual meeting of people on Twitter is called a Twitter-Chat.  I keep a running list as I come across tags, but there are new groups starting up every day and some events are one time only conference tags,  but still worth checking out if the conversation seems interesting.  If you want to know more about each group, simply type the tag into Google and you will find information on each group.  If you know of any other great Twitter chats, be sure to leave them in the comment section here~

      Tweet Chats are a great way to grow your followers STRATEGICALLY. You are connecting with like minded people who share a common interest during an organized and LIVE chat. All you have to do is go to http://TweetChat.com at the appointed hour (for the chat you are interested in), log in with your Twitter user name and password, and then enter the #Hashtag that is asigned for that chat. Now you will only see the tweets by folks in that same chat. I recommend following folks from this chat afterwards! Happy Tweeting!
