Did you know that there are topic specific chats on Twitter? There are! I have participated in a few of then and they were terrific!
On Tuesdays at 9 pm Eastern there is a chat called Mental Health and Social Media, hash tag #mhsm .
On Thursdays, at 10 pm Eastern there is a chat for people who have a family member with a mental illness/mental health issue. Its hash tag is #ojtl , which stands for the blog Our Journey Through Life , whose author hosts this chat.
On Thursdays, at 9 pm Eastern there is a chat for people who live with migraines. Its hash tag is #migrainechat
The easiest way to participate in these chat is to use the TweetChat web application. It will ask you to sign in using your Twitter username and password. After you have done that, type in the hash tag for the chat you want to participate in at the top of the page. TweetChat will search out that hash tag on Twitter. Once it finds people using that hash tag, it will take you to a “chatroom”, and you can begin participating in the chat.
