Joining In on Twitter Chats

A great way to connect with others in the tech community is by means of joining in on a Twitter Chat. So what's a Twitter chat? 

"A tweet chat is a live Twitter event, usually moderated and focused around a general topic. To filter all the chatter on Twitter into a single conversation a hashtag is used. A set time is also established so that the moderator, guest or host is available to engage in the conversation." -- Forbes
