Twitter Chats covering sports business, sports media, public relations, and other related topics have become extremely popular across the social media network.
If you don’t already have a Twitter account, now might be the time to create one if you aspire to expand your network as well as your sports knowledge. ESPN’s sports business reporter, Kristi Dosh, does a nice job of elaborating on the importance of participating in weekly Twitter Chats in her blog, SportsBizMiss.com.
A graduate from the University of Florida’s Levin College of Law, Dosh explains that a Twitter Chat is arguably the easiest way to network with sports professionals. No need to fly to a sports career conference or try to grab a five-minute talk with that C-level executive.
Whether you respond to each set of questions from the moderator or just soak in some sports knowledge for an hour, Twitter Chats are definitely a great resource for sports-minded people.
