12 Most Stimulating Twitter Chats
Monday through Friday, around the clock, Tweet #Chats are taking over the stream. Discussions on business, politics, dating, and a plethora of other subjects consume the minds of tweeters everywhere.
The pundits come running to them to share their wits. The guests dive into the stream, retweeted at the speed of light. After all, they are the experts, even if they aren’t all that interesting (or much of an expert). If things really get going, the occasional squabble will ensue; the comfort of Twitter distance can elevate some people’s moxie. Despite the odd bicker-fest, #Chats are fun and can initiate many great and lasting connections. This is because, in “Twitter #Chats”, we’re able to learn more about those who share a common interest. #Chats are a worldwide open forum to share and embrace discussion, debate, and intellect.
So many #Chat topics and so little time! How to Choose! I suspect you may have this Job Title if you’re able to attend all of the #Chats on Twitter (there are hundreds). To help you zero in, I have developed (for your eyes only) my list of the 12 Most Stimulating Twitter Chats:
This hour offers great conversation about the strategic and daily challenges of public speakers. Monday at 8:00 CST Monday at 8:00 CST (Founded by Michele Price)
You jump onto Twitter to speak about LinkedIn (seems a bit odd to me, too). Actually, this chat covers a lot around LinkedIn and in a better forum than LinkedIn offers. Tuesday at 7:00 CST (Moderated by Vivika Von Rosen)
At the speed of light, bloggers discuss their blog. Populated by experts, amateurs, and lurkers, this chat is busy and chock full of great insight. Sunday at 8:00 CST (Moderated by Mack Collier)
An hour well spent taking a spiritual look at leadership topics. Inspiring the heart, soul, and the journey within ones self in the process of becoming an inspirational leader. Tuesday at 7:00 CST (Moderated by Lolly Daskal)

Mind your manners – on Social Media, of course. This chat is a lot of fun where there is also a lot to learn. Tuesday at 9:00 CST (Moderated by Dabney Porte)
This is 100% plug for a great chat on a topic around which I am complerely indifferent; Country Music. If you like the music, meeting celebs and industry folks, or having fun chatting with great people, then giddy up! Monday at 8:00 CST (Moderated by Jessica Northey and Tobey Deys)
