Imagine having a conversation with your peers, colleagues and friends in short 140-character bursts. Not possible you say? Well imagine these people are not even in front of you but on the other side of the world, in a different time zone? (Not hard to imagine if you live in Australia, right?)
In the world before telephones or internet, this would have seemed a far-fetched fantasy.
Today, however, Twitter allows users to communicate in exactly this way; with short 140-character messages called ‘tweets’. A particularly exciting and growing area of the Twitter platform is Twitter chat, which is essentially a live Twitter event, focused around a particular topic.
Joining a Twitter chat is a great way to engage with a community, increase your product brand’s social visibility, and connect with an audience in a new way.
I recently was invited to participate in the SAS France led Twitter #SASchat on the impact of Internet of Things on the Analytics Administrator. Here a number of experts in the community weighed in with their thoughts and experiences via the Q&A, and discussed and shared their resources. To give you an idea of what the event was like, check out the Twitter chat summary.
To learn more about Twitter chat and enjoy having 140-character bursts of SAS-related conversation over a Twitter #SASchat, please keep reading at the Metacoda Catch the #SASchat Twitter chatter bug blog post.
Hope to "chat" with you soon...
