Twitter Chats bring together groups of invested and influential people and organisations to debate important topics, raise awareness and network. Twitter® began in 2006, the brainchild of Jack Dorsey who developed it as a way that groups could keep up to date with what participants were doing. It grew relatively rapidly as a means for tech conference participants to share their thoughts. Tweets were shared to users and non-users alike via the now familiar streams published on screens around conference venues.
