Have you joined any Twitter group chat online? What are your key objectives in joining? We can’t deny that fact that Twitter is the most engaged social media platform by bloggers and online marketers today. Twitter is not only for getting fans or followers but it gives you the opportunity to establish your own brand and build your own community in different ways such as Twitter Group Chatting.
Before I was a blogger who didn’t appreciate the importance of being serious on Twitter engagement perhaps it’s because I haven’t realize the positive results and the difficulties to find a good group to collaborate with since everybody is busy online (even I don’t have much time to stay tune) and I’m not that influential to host for it or make them-in in a conversation. However, by constantly be updated on bloggers community like BlogEngage I learned a lot of things from other bloggers and social media experts like Justin Coke of AdsenseFlippers.com, it changed my mind on the way I engage on Twitter now.
So, what are really benefits of joining in a Twitter Group Chat?

Tips on joining a Twitter Group Chat
There are lots of twitter group chats that you can join online but choosing the one that peaks your interest will make you more effective and helpful to others. Somehow it’s cooler if you join on a group that you already know most of the members, just a feeling that you belong on them.
Remember, your main goal in joining is to engage with other people to share your brilliant ideas, not spamming them though you promote your brands too. Maintain the respect to others especially on their opinions, appreciate and recognize everybody. Be friendly and I know they will reciprocate on you.
Apologize if you say something bad intentionally and never forget to mention them on your tweets.
