What is a tweet chat? A tweet chat is a live Twitter event or conversation focused around a specific topic at a set time.   Think of it as a virtual meeting.  A hashtag is used to filter the conversation.
What is a hash tag?  A hashtag is a word or phrase preceded by a hash or pound (#) sign.  It is used to identify a specific topic or reference. 
How do you participate? To participate, all you do is tweet during the designated time using the conversation hashtag.  You can also simply read along in live time as the conversation is unfolding.  
How to use TweetChat?   (instructions from Tweetchat.com)
1. Sign in to TweetChat.  Signup with Twitter if you don't have an Account. 
2.  Choose hashtag you wish to follow (#FeastEDChat).  The hashtag will direct you to the right TweetChat room.
3. Converse in real time.  Each tweet automatically gets the hashtag added and the room auto-updates.
