If you’re familiar with Twitter you’ll know that every now and then a chat hashtag will pop up and suddenly quite a few people in your timeline will be using it but you won’t know why. Organised Twitter chats have become a regular thing and there are two in particular that you should pay attention to if you work in PR.
#PRProChat takes place on the first Thursday of every month at 3pm EST (that’s 8pm GMT) and you can check out the upcoming topics here.
To join in search for the #PRProChat or #CommsChat hashtags at the appropriate times and you’ll see the conversation flowing. You can be part of the conversation yourself by using the hashtag on any tweets.
It’s a great way to keep abreast of current industry issues, and to network online with other PR practitioners.
