Some Cool Education Chats on Twitter

conversations or live chats on Twitter take place when people post
comments that include keywords with “hashtags” (#). Hashtags mark
the post as belonging to a specific topic or conversation.
 Hashtags also make it easy to see the full conversation on a
particular topic: Just type the keyword into the search box at the
top of your Twitter screen.
