12 Twitter Chats For Community Managers and Social Media Pros Kevin Shively Blogger Extraordinaire Simply Measured

Twitter chats have become one of the best ways to use 140 characters.

With hashtags specific to each chat, Twitter chats generally operate under a Q & A format with a moderator who plans topics and guests. Experts of each chat’s topic come in each week and answer questions and share advice. For social media professionals, these chats become more than just an interesting extracurricular event. They can be a great way to expand your influence, connect with experts and other folks in your space, and learn how to do your job more efficiently.

We’ve tracked the top twitter chats for community managers and social media professionals using Simply Measured‘s Twitter Activity Report, and here are the top 12, based on the volume of Tweets over the last two weeks.
