A Complete List of Twitter Hours and How to Use Them.

If you don’t know already Twitter Hours are specific Hash Tags (#) on Twitter, based around a specific community. The premise of them is that for a hour each week, members of that community will tweet out, using their Hash Tag, and talk to each other online. They are a great way of growing your twitter following, and increasing your engagement too.

There are hundreds of Twitter Hours out there, so we have collated a list for you below. At the bottom we have also included some Top Tips on using Twitter Hours.

So as you can see, there isn’t that many to choose from *sarcasm alert*

This is what we suggest you do…

ACTION: Look down the list and pick out your top 5 twitter hours.
ACTION: Over the next couple weeks schedule in your diary to try out at least 2 a week.
ACTION: Measure in each Twitter Hour which has most engagement (i.e. followers/replys/RTs/favourites), and pick 2 Twitter Hours to do each week.

Top Tips on Twitter Hours
The issues we see with Twitter Hours is that people see it as an excuse to solely push out sales messages. Which to be honest is selfish. They are supposed to be a way for a community of people to interact and talk to each other. So often the bigger the hours get, the worse they become for developing meaningful connections (which leads to sales!)

Tip 1: Understand people are not going to see your tweet, and buy from you then and there. Instead see Twitter Hours as a way of building up connections and then continue to speak to those people on Twitter.

Tip 2: It might be a good idea to put people you have interacted with in a private Twitter List, so you can easily find their content again on Twitter.

Tip 3: Be a dedicated Twitter Hour attendee, the more regular you become, the more people will interact with you and remember you.

Tip 4: Photos and Videos are so powerful, as they will stand out in the feed. Use them.

Tip 5: Don’t just talk about yourself, reply, RT and follow other people contributing.

Tip 6: The list above isn’t extensive, new ones are set-up regularly so Keep an eye out for any other suitable ones. Comment below if you find one, and we’ll add it to the list.

Tip 7: Twitter Hours work by reciprocating, if you Retweet and follow people, chances are that they will do the same to you.
