We are continuing our series on How to Make the Most of Your HootSuite Account by reviewing how to use HootSuite for Twitter Chats, including how to find, monitor and participate in chats.
How to use HootSuite to Manage Twitter Chats
In this week's installment of our How to Make the Most of Your HootSuite Accountseries, we begin to dive into some of the more advanced features and uses of the social media management tool.
Have you ever participating in a Twitter Chat? If you have, you know that it can get pretty crazy! New tweets coming fast and furious, right alongside other people mentioning you and retweeting your comments, and sometimes even sending you direct messages. For new participants, it can be pretty confusing!
That's where the dashboard layout of HootSuite can come in so handy. Unlike Twitter's web interface, which can only display one stream at a time, HootSuite can show you the chat, right alongside streams for Mentions and Direct Messages, and anything else you want to monitor. And you can save your setup so that each week, when you want to participate in the same scheduled chat, it's all ready for you.
One of my favorite new chats is #GooglePlusChat, started by +Jesse Wojdylo, where we have fun on Twitter talking about Google+. That's at 2pm EST every Tuesday.
If you'd like to learn more about how easy HootSuite can make your Chat experience, check out the rest of the tips and information in the article below. And if you have one or more regular Twitter chat's you're participating in, please give them a shout out! Tell us the hashtag, time and topic.
Thanks for your comments and shares!
