Twitter Chat FAQs:

What is a Twitter Chat?

A Twitter chat is a conversation about a specific topic, usually at a specific time. There are annual chats about everything from web journalism to agriculture. Organizations often use Twitter to hold one-time chats about specific topics, have Q+A's, discuss news series, and much more.

How do I join in?

Twitter chats are organized around specific hashtags. Our hashtag is #NPRChats. Make sure to include #NPRChats in all your tweets about the chat before, during and after.

I already know what questions I want to ask. Is there any way to ask them before the chat?

Yes! If you already have ideas you want to discuss or questions you want to make sure are answered tweet them to us at @NPRDS with the #NPRChats hashtag before the chat, and we will make sure that they are addressed.

How do I follow a hashtag?

There are several ways to follow a hashtag. (Most of these work from mobile, so you can join from anywhere.)

    Search for #NPRChats on Twitter.
    Use tools like TweetChat
    Follow the discussion here:#nprchats Tweets

How do I not annoy my followers when I tweet a lot during a Twitter chat?

Start your tweets with @NPRDS (or another username) so that only people who follow both you and that user will see the tweets in their feeds.
