Every week, I look forward to a good tweet chat discussion. Participating in the conversation or even just following along is a great way to learn, get inspired and to meet interesting people. Joining a tweet chat discussion is a new way to network and it’s proving to be effective. However, what happens after a tweet chat is over? The hour is up and people go their separate Twitter ways. Too often it seems that the dynamic interactions end after the event and some of the great connections are lost.
