Tweet chats are virtual meetings held online through Twitter—a great way to connect with peers to speak about different topics of interest in convenient way in real-time. Hundreds of tweet chats occur each week, and although we are not able to attend all of them, we’d like to share some great regularly scheduled health tweet chats.
A few of our top picks (with descriptions from Symplur):
#hcsm tweet chat (Weekly, Sun. @ 9PM EST)
Since 2009, this weekly chat hosts conversations about communications in healthcare, including the use of social media.

#HCLDR tweet chat (Weekly, Tues. @ 8PM EST)
This tweet chat focuses on the topic of leadership within health care. Moderators believe success will be achieved when diverse communities of people, who are involved in health care, gather together once a week to learn, listen and discover how we can enhance the professional lives for those who serve patients.
