12 Most Stimulating Twitter Chats

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:

1. Speakchat

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)

2. Linkedinchat

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)

3. Blogchat

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)

4. Leadfromwithin

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)

5. GetRealChat

Presents a host of topics where candor is the rule. When you jump on board, show up, prepare to “Get Real.” Tuesday at 8:00 CST (Moderated by Pam Moore)

6. TChat

Discussion for talent management as it pertains to career, professional development, and advancement. Tuesday at 7:00 CST (Moderated by Meghan M. Biro & Kevin W Grossman)

7. LeadershipChat

This chat was where it all started for me. Great banter, great people, and a fantastic subject! Tuesday at 7:00 CST (Moderated by Lisa Petrilli and Steve Woodruff)

8. BizForum

This chat is new to the stream and it’s the place to be for great exchange, taking the approach of a debate rather than streams of consciousness. Thursday at 8:00 CST (Moderated by Sam Fiorella)

9. SMManners

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)

10. CMChat

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)

11. JobHuntChat

I popped in here the other night and really enjoyed it! Great topics and great mentors leading those seeking employment by providing tips/tricks/ideas aimed at job-hunting success. Monday at 9:00 CST (Moderated by Rich DeMatteo and Jessica Miller-Merrell)

12. CXO

This is a daytime chat to get your week off to a great start.
It offers great discussion around, not just customer service, but the entire customer experience! Love this chat and was honored to be a guest host (hint to invite me back?). Monday at 11:00 CST (Moderated by Visvisimo Inc.)

In addition to these incredible chats, there are literally hundreds of others. You can always find an interesting chat going on in Twitter. A great place to start looking if you’re new to the space is this comprehensive and continually updated and curated list of Twitter chats.

So there you have it. The best chats on twitter, the time and day to be there, the chat leaders, and even a personal invite from me to attend (disclaimer: this offer has no cash or social value).

Jump in, and get chatting.

I’m Dan Newman, I am just another guy with a blog, and these are my 12 most.

Great post @danielnewmanUV ! Thanks for putting this info together. Please consider adding #ToolsChat on Wednesdays @ 10pm ET to this list. That is one of the best chats I've participated in. Great group of tweeps!

@danielnewmanUV I'm really hurt, crushed, demoralized, and otherwise devastated that you neglected #DadChat - which often has at least one or two "stimulating" tweets by yours truly! Is this getting back at me for NOT including you on the 12 Most Incredible Dads list? No matter that that post-dated this by months...LOL...

You can make up for it by showing up 2nite for #DadChat (6-7 pm, PST)? Maybe offer a car as a giveaway? Porsche. 911.

Dan, thanks for the list and your perspective. Quite a timely topic for us as just last week I held a chat for folks in the A/E/C industry (architects, engineers, construction) -- used the #aecHingeMarketing Didn't know what to expect! It was pretty cool because the conversation included folks from across the US and over the pond to UK and Portugal. I can see how we will be doing this again as an extension of our networking and brand building. @HingeMarketing @seantmcvey

Great list! I'd like to mention #SmallBizChat - hosted by @smallbizlady every Wednesday @ 8PM EST. Lots of great small business experts, coaches, and consultants...and the group is super generous with sharing ideas, resources, encouragement and answers. Hope you can stop by!

I wanted to also make a quick note to everyone! I know and am quickly learning there are TONS of other great chats that didn't make the list. Thanks for letting me know about them. The beauty of a qualitative/curated blog is the "Realness" that is associated with it. Comes more from experience and the heart than from a pile of research.

So everyone....What is your 12most?

Besides the #UsGus stream tweetchats are my next favorite twitter activity! Such a wealth of information, ideas, and great thoughts flying by that I leave invigorated EVERYTIME! A great list of chats and summary of them. I only see a few that I haven't peeked in to that I just may have to find the time to put on my schedule. I'm biased to #CXO but my two other fave chats are #LeadershipChat and #BrandChat - #InnoChat is moving up in priority as well. Thanks for sharing!

Honored to have #CXO chat listed in top 12 Daniel! In reality, its the attendees like you who make the chat so rich. We've found the chat an excellent place to share ideas and collaborate on customer experience best practices and we've now created a LI page for more sharing!

Thank you for being such a great guest on Gen Y and the Customer Experience! And I got the hint - we would love to have you back. Ping me! See you on Monday at 12 noon EST

Dan, great write-up! I agree with your assessments of the ones I'm familiar with, including #leadfromwithin, #tchat, and #leadershipchat; thank you for turning me on to a couple more I'm psyched to check out. I'd like to add one to your list, though. My favorite chat is #custserv (9pm ET Tuesdays), founded by @Marshacollier and @jeffreykingman, with a very solid weekly assist by @royatkinson. It's one of the top-attended chats (#2 last time I checked), with a very lively discussion in its stream throughout the week on all manner of customer service issues. My favorite part is the community, even more than the weekly discussion. One hell of a great Tribe to belong to.

I met the best people in #Chats (present company exceptional!!), #LeadershipChat makes me smart, #BlogChat made me brave enough to start blogging, #SMManners keeps me tidy, and #CMChat Rocks (Countrys) my Mondays (bit biased on that last one;-))

Thanks for this great post (and hugs for the shoutout!)

U Country #dnUV!

Great list Daniel, thanks! You've definitely opened up some options for me to use in plugging holes in my calendar. (I'd also like to humbly suggest #SocialChat, Mondays at 8p CT with @aknecht and @SocialMichelleR.)

Awesome list, Daniel. I would also add Kaizenblog - founded by Valeria Maltoni. It's all about getting better and has a great community. I love that you included Leadershipchat and Blogchat as well as CXOchat - some of my favorites!

Yes there are many great communities started in hashtagchats, thanks for sharing Speakchat we talk with speakers AND authors ;)).

Love how you are creating a great place with 12 Most to bring about awareness, stimulate conversation and keeping if informative yet brief.

Some great chats on this list! (disclaimer: I have a bias!) I do however participate in many of these when I get the chance. Thanks for the #bizforum mention - and we welcome you to come debate the next trending-business topic or weigh in on our "Question of the Day".

Daniel,

I love that it all started for you on #LeadershipChat! It's been such a joy getting to know you and I genuinely appreciate having our chat included in this list. It's a phenomenal chat simply because we have a phenomenal community of leaders who are willing to bare their souls and talk about leading from a much deeper level!

All the best and thank you from the bottom of my heart,

Lisa Petrilli

@Natasha_D_G Great to see you stop by @12most - I am now committed to "Lurking" in Brand and Inno chat very soon!. Hope to see you hear more often.

@Vivisimo_Inc Darn. My subtle hint was that obvious LOL. Keep up the great work. Customer Experience is the direction of Customer Service. The life cycle of an individuals involvement with their supplier/retailer etc represents the experience. Much more proactive than just serving them when something goes wrong.

I'll be in touch soon...if I don't see you on Monday....

@tedcoine@marshacollier Ted - thanks for stopping by - I haven't had too many chances to jump into #custserv but Marsha is great and I aspire to get more involved there as well. I love talking customer service!!!

@TobeyDeys @tobeydeys No question - I met @pegfitzpatrick in #leadershipchat and met just about everyone else after that.
