Besides various priorities, topics and levels of interest, it can be a challenge to dedicate time just to sift through which Twitter Chats to follow and participate in.

For those unaware or unsure, a Twitter Chat involves like-minded Twitter users who meet at a pre-determined time to discuss a particular topic. Users follow the chat with a specific hashtag, which is part of each Tweet. Moderators ask questions (identified with Q1, Q2, Q3, etc.) to prompt responses from participants who answer using A1, A2, A3, respectively.

We’ve done some of the work for you by identifying some Twitter Chats for you to consider.
