Communicators have busy schedules.

Just when we think we’ve got it handled, bang! Another task is added to our list.

So, how in the world would you have time for a Twitter chat?

I used to think that a Twitter chat would be just a waste of time, but I kept hearing about them and how beneficial they could be. Could it hurt to try one out?

One Tuesday afternoon, I joined #RaganChat. My expectations were low: Could I figure out how to participate? What would I say? Would it be worth my hour?

Other participants were welcoming and I thought, “Maybe this won’t be as bad as I thought.”

I started tuning in every week. I learned things, made friends and got hooked.

Here are several ways participating in #RaganChat can benefit you:

1. Meet new people. Many cool communications pros from all walks attend the chat, including folks from PR, marketing, internal communications, social media and more.

Participants also come from different industries—education, government, healthcare and more—as well as several types of organizations, including agencies, corporations and small businesses.
