Twitter is more than just a platform for sharing news and updates: it can be a tool for directly communicating with your community and understanding what is important to them. One way you can connect with your Twitter audience is by hosting a Twitter Chat. They can be a good way to discuss key topics, raise awareness, and exchange knowledge and resources between you and the community. Several HIV organizations host Twitter chats on health topics, during HIV awareness days relevant to their community, and/or during HIV/AIDS conferences. You can also check in with your followers to see if there is a topic or issue that they’d like to discuss.We’ve compiled a few tips to get you started, thanks to our friends at the Office of Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (ODPHP), who created a long-standing resource for hosting Twitter chats .
