Twitter has long been dominated by large businesses, but in recent years, the non-profit market presence has grown significantly on this social media platform. The many unique features available make it the perfect space to network and raise awareness for your cause. Twitter Chats, aka Tweet Chats, are a powerful tool non-profits can and should take advantage of.
What is a Tweet Chat? A Tweet Chat is simply a virtual conversation. It is the perfect opportunity to connect with others who have the same interest as you.
The time and topic of the conversation are predetermined and a predesignated hashtag is used to link the participants comments.
Here are Three of our Favorite Non-Profit Themed Tweet Chats.
