What is a Twitter Chat?

A Twitter Chat is when a group of people all tweet about the same topic using a specific tag (#) called a hashtag. The hashtag allows the conversation to be followed on Twitter. The chats are at a specific time and often repeat weekly or bi-weekly, or are only at announced times.

There are many educational chats, and they are a great way to connect with educators around the world.

Twitter Chat tips

  • Do a search of the hashtag (#hpedsbchat) in twitter.com (upper right corner of twitter.com)
  • This will give you the search that you can filter by “Top,” “Latest,” “Accounts,” etc. Select “Latest” to see the latest tweets that include #hpedsbchat 
  • Alternatively, you can simply click on the hashtag on a tweet to see all the recent tweets around that hashtag.
  • Searching for the hashtag or clicking on the hashtag makes it easier to follow the conversation of all participants. Be aware that if you try to follow the chat from your own timeline you won’t “hear” all the contributing voices.

The #hpedsbchat will follow a structured chat format with Question 1 showing as Q1 and to which you would add “A1” to your response so others following know which question you are answering.

Thank you to moderators Tracy Demianchuk (tdemianchuk@hpedsb.on.ca) and Wendy Goodman (wgoodman@hpedsb.on.ca). Feel free to reach out to them with any questions.
