Twitter chats are a fantastic way discover fresh ideas and discuss current issues with your colleagues all over the country.  When a chat is filled with people though, it can be difficult to follow the conversation.  Tchat.io solves that problem for you by providing you with a better way to manage those conversations.

To get started, head over to Tchat.io and enter the hashtag of the chat you want to follow then click the “Start Chatting” button.  Tchat will display a live feed of the chat in an easy to read format.  You can read, reply, retweet, and favorite any tweet using the familiar icons on the right hand side.  The chat display is nice, but Tchat greatest asset is the ability to pause a chat.  Simply click the Pause button in the upper left to pause the feed.  You take a few minutes, read or reply to the conversation, and then resume the chat when you are ready.

Even if you’re not an active Twitter Chat participant, Tchat.io is worth a look when trying to find new ideas.  It collects all the tweets for a given chat and allows you read through them.
