A Twitter chat is an organized event where people participate in an interactive conversation through tweets. The conversation usually focuses on a pre-arranged topic and specific tag (#) called a hashtag. Hashtags allow the conversation to be easily followed on Twitter. The chats are scheduled for a specific time and date, but are archived on the NIMH website for viewing anytime. To participate, you will need a Twitter handle and account. If you prefer to simply observe the chat taking place, you may enter the specified hashtag at twubs.com to view the conversation in real-time.
See you on Twitter!
