Have you ever heard or participated in a Twitter Chat? If you haven’t heard the term, a Twitter Chat is when a group of Twitter users convene on Twitter at the same time around a specific topic (organized by a unique hashtag) and talk about something specific and related to that hashtag.
Twitter Chats usually happen at a specific time weekly, bi-monthly, or monthly.
Twitter Chats are a great way to interact and meet with like-minded people in your industry or niche interest, are an awesome way to discover new brands you may have never heard of, and are an excellent way to grow your own community about something you are passionate about.
#CraftBevChat will be a weekly Twitter Chat taking place on Tuesdays at 6pm PST.
You may be a brewer or huge fan of craft beer that swaps tweets with your beer brotherhood, but have you ever connected with a winery in your area or a fan of wine who also likes craft beer? There are many! And if you blog about wine, have you ever come across the opportunity to shoot the breeze with a whiskey blogger? How about learning a little bit more about craft coffee?
Each week’s #CraftBevChat is hosted by @CraftBevJobs and the good folks at the @CraftBeverage Expo. We’ll have different topics (announced ahead of time via our blog or on Twitter), and will spend an hour having fun discussing various things – but mostly celebrating our passions for all things craft beverage!
How to Participate in #CraftBevChat
Participating is easy. Regardless of what device you use (desktop, tablet, or mobile), the only real requirement is that you have a Twitter account. Whether you use twitter.com to follow along or use a third party application like TweetChat or Hootsuite, all you need to do is search for the term #CraftBevChat and either refresh your screen (twitter.com) or save the term to view all tweets in TweetChat or Hootsuite. Every time you send a tweet, make sure to include the #CraftBevChat tag so that your message is included in the conversation!
