Our Tips for Chatting on Twitter

If you use Twitter, then you know how useful tweet chats can be. They’re an excellent way to connect with like-minded individuals and make connections you might not usually make. If you’re new to tweet chats, hopefully, the tips below will help you out when first getting started in the tweet chat arena.

1. Use a reliable Twitter client

The first thing you want to do is use a reliable Twitter client to follow the chat. Nothing can be more frustrating that trying to keep up with the chat when the software you’re using keeping timing out or lagging.

At Mungi our client of choice is TweetChat.

Reasons we use it:

  • Slow down the flow of the chat if it’s going too fast
  • Smart pause lets you read what you’ve missed
  • Feature and Block users, keep track of those you want and ignore those you don’t want to
  • Toggle font allows you to view the chat at a readable level

There are other ways to track the chats; the important thing is to figure out what features you want then try it out to make sure it works for you.

2. Keep your tweets short

When interacting in the chat, it’s a good idea to keep your tweets short enough so they can be retweeted and so others can add their remarks onto it. Also, chats tend to go by pretty quickly even if you do use TweetChat to slow it down so making your tweets scannable means the other people in the conversation are more likely to read your tweets, reply to them or retweet.

3. Listen and participate

After moderator asks question Q1, Q2, Q3 et.c, you should also respond with A1, A2, A3, etc. It will help others understand what question you’re answering in the chat. Be mindful of others in the chat and interact with not only the Moderator but the others in the chat as well. There’s more than just you and the Moderator in the tweet stream.

At the end of the chat thank the Moderator & other peeps at the end of the chat you followed or engaged with during the chat. Then take some time to try and connect with others you might have missed the opportunity to interact with during the chat. More often than not some people keep tweeting long after the “chat” has ended.

4. Track the chats

From full transcripts of chats to snapshots of tweets, impressions and reach, there is also top 10/top 20 lists that help analyse the audience of the conversation. That’s helpful to see who are the leaders of the discussion, who makes the biggest impression and who you might want to follow.

5. Show your passion

If you’re participating in a Twitter chances are it’s something you’re passionate about or something you want to learn more about. One way to hit it off with people in the tweet chat is to talk about why you’re passionate about the topic. If you’re looking to learn you’ll connect with people that can help you out, or if you already know a great deal it’s a chance for you to shed some knowledge and help out.
