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.
