What is a TweetChat? TweetChats are online conversations held at a pre-arranged date/time between a group of Twitter users. Chats are uniquely identified by pre-defined Twitter hashtag (such as #ciscosbchat) to identify the discussion thread. By including this hashtag in each tweet, the conversation can be monitored separate from the larger Twitter conversations.

Once again, we look forward to chatting with you on October 20th at 3-4 pm ET (12-1 pm PT).  Just follow hashtag #ciscosbchat and join the discussion!
