Did you know that we host a weekly Twitter Chat with a successful business professional or author? In this post I am going to go over what a Twitter Chat is, why you should participate, when we have the Business Fuel chat, and how you can participate. What is Twitter Chat? A Twitter Chat is a way for a group of people with the same interests to discuss those things they have in common. By using a Twitter hashtag (e.g. #BusinessFuel or #Lendio) they can converse together as a group in a setting that feels much like a group instant message. The “hashtag” helps those participating keep track of the conversation that’s taking place within their Twitter stream. Each chat has a specific day and time when they meet to discuss a specific topic. Why Business Fuel Live Chat? The Business Fuel Experience is now a blog, podcast, and a Twitter Chat—providing several opportunities to engage with our podcast guest and gain knowledge to better run your business. The Business Fuel Live Chat allows you to connect and interact with other business owners, ask questions directly to our guests, and get real-time feedback. When is Business Fuel Live Chat?
