In today’s technological society, Twitter has become a great way for professionals in architecture, landscape design, and urban planning to frequently communicate. As a result, more and more professionals today are using the online platform to discuss topics relating to community, environment, infrastructure, and more.
Thus, twitter has become one of the best ways to connect people within various industries.
Taking advantage of twitter chats can be simple. All people need to do is set up a free account, study helpful tips about using twitter, and start following friends, colleagues, or experts. All that remains after that is to find a chat, follow the chat rules, learn how to use the chat tools, and participate in the chat.
