Twitter Chats for Job Seekers

I’m not terribly active on Twitter, I must confess. Some days, it feels like I have more than enough input from many, many sources—adding Twitter makes my head feel like it’s going to explode.

So I have missed some developments—including the phenomenon described in this link, Twitter Chat. It’s described well in the article I’ve linked here. At a predetermined meeting time, those chatting use a hashtag to thread the 140-character tweets into a cohesive conversation. The article also recommends some clients (software that sets up the Twitter information in a specifically useful way) to help you get the most out of the chat.

This article also describes eight specific Chats that NU English majors seeking a job, or wanting a community for their concerns, might be interested in. That narrowing-down is good—because when I checked the list of all available chats (linked in this article), I found that there are nearly 600 ongoing chats!
