Apra TwitterChats provide one hour of interaction with all avid social media users and our sponsored speakers. The content will vary, as the topic is selected by the sponsor and Apra. It provides the opportunity for Apra’s members to ask questions and initiate discussion among the sponsor. TwitterChats all hosted live via Twitter. The sponsor and Apra dial into a conference line for the duration of the chat to streamline the flow of the conversation. Anyone with a Twitter account may participate. The final discussion will be archived on Apra’s website
