What are Twitter chats?

A Twitter Chat is a live discussion on a specific theme via Twitter anyone with a Twitter account can contribute using the pre-agreed hashtag e.g. #ukmedlibs

Sometimes Twitter Chats revolve around a new documentation or it can be a general discussion around a 'hot topic'.

How can Twitter chats support CPD?

They are a great way of connecting with other health and non-health information professionals.  It is a good way to share your own experiences, knowledge and ideas irrespective of what stage you are at in your career.

How do I find what Twitter chats are coming up?
