What is a Twitter Chat? Twitter Chats are discussion events on Twitter that use a specific hashtag, such as #BearcatsChat, and are moderated by one or more Twitter accounts. To participate, users simply follow the conversation through the hashtag and use it in tweets to ask questions or interact with other participants during the chat. If you do not have a Twitter account, you can still see the conversation by searching the hashtag via Twitter or other Twitter Chat monitoring sites during the chat.
The University of Cincinnati hosts Twitter Chats periodically on different topics that are open to the UC community and beyond. These chats help answer questions participants may have and connect people together. In past chats, we have had a variety of participants including alums, incoming students, current students, university accounts, accounts from local businesses and those outside of the UC community. We’ve also had participants from other states in the United States including Georgia and Michigan.
Our next chat is Tuesday, August 12 from 7:00-9:00 p.m. ET. The topic is Welcome Weekend (#UCWelcome14). Follow the chat through #BearcatsChat.
