Do you find real time Twitter chats valuable in community building and engagement?
Have you tried setting up Twitter chats? What was your experience like? How did you reach out to people to join the chats?
@alfredlua @kevanlee - any words of wisdom from the #BufferChat experience?
@mattdiederichs - any learnings from #HootChat you could share?
Thanks for the tag, @anujadhiya! And great question, @oj_que!
I would say #bufferchat (our Twitter chat) is very valuable for community building and engagement. I believe it was one of the key drivers that brought our community together online. (Great work by Nicole!)

Thanks Alfred! Reaching a million people on Twitter chat is just phenomenal. I'll check out your blog posts. Thanks for sharing!
You're welcome, @oj_que! Hope the posts are useful! Feel free to ping me on Twitter if there's anything I can help with :)
Hi Anuj, thanks for the nudge!
I once tried to run a weekly Twitter chat for our brand over a year ago and it failed. We had 5 or 6 chats on different topics and it didn't take off. I think the biggest number of people who attended the busiest chat was 7 so a rather poor result.
I think you can succeed with a Twitter chat once you already have a dedicated community built for your brand, but I might be wrong and just simply failed to set up the chat successfully.
