Social networks and communities can be built, maintained, and sustained through social media. Twitter chats, structured discussions which take place on the social media platform Twitter, are highly popular examples of community building around a hot topic.EdSurge’s #DLNChats (Digital Learning Network Chat) have acted as an enabler to develop a community of higher education professionals on Twitter. Co-hosted by WCET, OLC, and Tyton Partners, these chats consistently have 100+ participants who come together once a month to discuss a trending topic in higher education.
