A Twitter chat is a group of people on Twitter who use a specific hashtag (we will be using #AHWW) to generate an online conversation. @Foodwatch will be tweeting four questions throughout the hour. For example,

‘Q1. What are your best healthy home cooking tips? #AHWW’

To respond to a question, use ‘A1.’ prior to your comment – and remember to include #AHWW in your Tweet. For example,

‘A1. Choose vegetables that are in season. #AHWW’

You can type #AHWW in the Twitter search to follow all the Tweets. However, some chats generate so many tweets that it is difficult to capture them all on Twitter. Many people who regularly attend chats prefer sites such as, which help to capture more of the action. You can still use these sites to Tweet and re-Tweet.
