SafeNet holds a Twitter chat focused on technology and security every Thursday at 2pm EST/ 11am PST. The biggest question we get is not about the technology or ideas we discuss, but “What is a Twitter chat and how do I participate?”

What is a Twitter chat?
A Twitter chat (or tweet chat) is an online discussion using twitter, so every post is a tweet. Because it’s on Twitter, its open to everyone with a Twitter account. Anyone can participate, or just listen in to learn more about the topic.

How Do I Participate?
Step 1: If you don’t already have a Twitter account, sign up at Make sure you change your picture from the default egg so you don’t look like too much of a newbie.

Step 2: You can search for “#securechat” on Twitter and follow the chat there, but there are other web sites that make it much, much easier. Our favorite is TweetChat. Go to and sign in using your twitter name and password, then click Authorize App.Sign in to TweetChat

Step 3: Search for “securechat” and click Go. This will take you to a page with every tweet including the #securechat hashtag. Here you can “listen in” on the chat or participate with your own tweets. When you tweet, TweetChat has a bonus feature that it automatically adds the #securechat hashtag to the end of your tweet.


Step 4: Start chatting!
