What is a Twitter Chat?

Twitter Chats (#SocEntChats) are real-time Twitter-based discussions. They are designed to provide a conversation forum for current and aspiring social entrepreneurs, nonprofit leaders, funders, media, and supporters to share ideas, discuss sector-specific topics, identify the latest innovations, and pinpoint areas that require deeper exploration.


Joining the Conversation

Joining the conversation is easy. Just log-in to your Twitter account a little before 3:30pm IST on May 22nd, 2014, and then:

  • Use the #SocEntChat and #saferoads hashtags to make your comments visible in the conversation.
  • Introduce yourself and take a minute to get to know the other chatters when you join.
  • @Changemakers will moderate the discussion and send questions to the whole group.
  • Send your questions to @Changemakers without the hashtag (to keep them out of the stream) so they can be considered for this conversation.
  • Stay on topic, be respectful, and most importantly, have fun!


We’re looking forward to your participation!
