What Is Twitter Chat and How are Horse People Using It To Connect?

A Twitter Chat is a group conversation around a particular topic of interest.  Twitter Chats are  similar to a chat room except that they place in real time. Typically, Chat hosts use an application like TweetChat or Twebevent 400Contest3 300x300 What Is Twitter Chat and How are Horse People Using It To Connect?to  organize the event and Chats are held at regularly scheduled times.

Currently, there are over 400 Chats on the Twitter Chat Schedule on subjects ranging from cooking to college fashion and from technology to barefoot running. Hashtags are used to identify the Chat for example: #blogchat or #poetparty.  And thanks to Mandee Widrick of Horse Family Magazine there is #Horse Chat!

I caught up with Mandee last week and here is what she has to say about Twitter and #Horse Chat.
