What is a Twitter Hour?

A Twitter hour is an event set up on Twitter that allows users to contribute by using a # (hashtag) to a conversation that is held at a specific date and time. During these twitter hours users promote their businesses and services as well as socially interacting with others.

Why join in?


They're often convenient for micro-businesses and sole traders to pop in and out. They can expose brands to new customers, those whom they might not have captured any other way. They provide a human element to social media – when used correctly – to spark conversations.

Networking hours help you promote you and your business to a captive audience. Anyone joining a networking hour is doing so for the sole purpose to let other businesses know about them and finding out about YOU.​


#wetherbyhour enjoys a possible total weekly tweet reach of up to 2.5 million but an outstanding total monthly impression reach of 16 million (that's our followers followers, their followers etc).
