tweet jam

A tweet jam is a moderated discussion on Twitter that is planned around a particular question or topic, promoted in advance and scheduled for a specific time period. 

A tweet is a post on Twitter. Tweet jams are public discussions, open to all interested Twitter users. The discussion is organized around hashtags relevant to the conversation. Users find specific tweet jams by searching for the hashtag(s) and participate by adding the same hashtags to their tweets. 

An announcement for a tweet jam usually appears first on a website. Here's an example of how our sister site SearchCIO posted details for their tweet jam about shadow IT and explained how to participate:

Event details:

Date: Wednesday, March 26, 2014
Time: 3 p.m. EDT
Host: @searchCIO
Hashtag: Use and follow #CIOChat (additional hashtags include #rogueIT, #shadowIT, etc.)

Is this your first #CIOChat? No problem. Here are the must-knows:

    • To follow the conversation, type "#CIOChat" into Twitter's search bar. From this new page, click "All" to view tweets in real time.
    • Your first #CIOChat tweet should be introductory, including your name, title and organization.
    • @SearchCIO will pose a series of questions to participants starting at 3 p.m. EDT (Q1, Q2, etc.). In your tweeted responses to each question, please preface with A1 (Answer 1), A2 and so on, then remember to include "#CIOChat." Each question will follow the shadow technology theme.
    • Be aware that Twitter allows only 140 characters per tweet. You are welcome to tweet multiple responses to each question.
    • Throughout the discussion, retweet (RT) and favorite tweets you concur with and reply to those you disagree with.

 

Some websites archive tweet jam posts for visitors to their sites. Depending on the specificity of the hashtags, it may be possible to participate in the conversation after the official tweet jam is over.

Tweet jams take their name from the musical version of a jam, an informal gathering in which all interested musicians are invited to participate and in that way help create the outcome.
