I know what it’s like – you’re busy, and the last thing you feel like you have time for is a bit of a gabble about work with strangers, but if you can make the time, Twitter chats can be a great opportunity to meet and get to better know people in and around the industry that you work in.
I’ve met people that ended up becoming clients while either chatting live, or browsing them after the fact. Add to that – and I’m not going to pretend they’re all great all of the time, because the quality does vary – you can learn quite a lot from some very smart people by paying attention and getting involved.
As people that used to get much more involved a couple of years ago, account director Angharad and I were talking about them recently, and we both said we’d lost sight of what and when was actually out there.
So, Angharad went and created this, an incredibly helpful calendar of Twitter chats!
Here then, in day (and time) order, are chats specific to PR, marketing and social media – enjoy!
