6 More Hashtag Chats You Should be Following

Hashtag chats are one of the most useful and unique ways that the Twitter community has organized itself. By joining one, you can learn tips about online marketing, try out new recipes, get help with your blogging questions or center yourself spiritually – hashtag chats cover as many topics are there are interests on Twitter. Below the jump we’ve got 6 hashtag chats that you should be following, as well as more information about what exactly they are and how you can join one today.

Hashtag chats are Twitter-based chats that occur at a designated time each day, week, or month. They are designed so that anyone can join in and participate in any hashtag chat, and they all use a hashtag “code” to designate the conversation – like #hashtagchat, for example. They often include guest tweeters and thought leaders from a particular niche, as well as newbies and everyone in between.

We’ve got a guide for you if you want to know how to join a hashtag chat or you just want to know more about what they are.
