What Exactly is a "Twitter Chat?"

A Twitter chat is a pre-arranged chat that happens on Twitter through the use of Twitter updates (called tweets) that include a hashtag (in our case, #AEDchat) to link those tweets together in a virtual conversation. These Twitter chats are scheduled on a particular day and time to enable participants to join the conversation in real time.
