For those who don’t know, a Twitter chat is a conversation held at a specific time on Twitter, usually moderated by a single account & easily marked by a hashtag.
There are hundreds, if not thousands, of Twitter chats going on weekly or monthly. That, in addition to the sheer volume of tweets flying around, it’s easy to get overwhelmed! Here are my top five Twitter chats for PR pros.

Last but surely not least, my personal favorite, #createlounge.
