I love Twitter chats. I spend a lot of time in them because they are super valuable and super fun. They offer up a chance to:
- Connect to like minded individuals
- Learn something
- Share your knowledge
- Discuss ideas
- Find collaborators
I’ve spent a lot of time looking for new chats and have found that they aren’t easy to find. They’re almost like an underground area of the internet as most of them are spread by word of mouth. Most of the ones I’ve come across randomly, with someone on my Twitter feed having participated in one and my seeing it by pure chance.
I became really excited one night when, upon googling Twitter chats, I came across a list of over 200! I spent nearly three hours going through them and nearly every single one was no longer in the works.
I was looking for one in my industry, the mind, body, spirit corner of the world. There were ones purely on the mind, only on the body or just on spirituality but I couldn’t find any that encapsulated all three. That’s when I decided to create my own (listed below).
Here’s a list of 16 Twitter chats that as of today (2/24/17) are very much up and operating!
The list of favorites are the ones I hang out in. The other awesome ones are the ones that I hear great things about! (They just don’t fit into my schedule)
I hope to see you in some! Talk to you there!
