How to Participate in Twitter Chats
To join a twitter chat, you have to follow its hashtag, and include the hashtag in your tweets. IBD Social Circle chats use #ibdsc. You can follow #ibdsc from within twitter, or by using another site such as Tweetchat or Tweetdeck. One advantage of Tweetchat is that it adds the hashtag to every tweet automatically. Tweetdeck (tweetdeck.twitter.com) is very useful in that it allows you to follow multiple columns of tweets based on filters you setup. Whichever website or app you plan to use for the chat, give yourself plenty of time to learn how it works before the chat begins.
