On Wednesday, June 11, we kicked off a new weekly Twitter chat called #Bufferchat.

In the past, our COO, Leo, hosted #toolschat and found great advice and tools through those Twitter chats. It was definitely time to bring back a Buffer-hosted Twitter chat, and our goal behind #Bufferchat is to further bind our incredible community and create amazing, helpful discussions. We’re aiming to do this weekly and explore a variety of topics that will help all Buffer fans and users!

This week’s focus was on productivity—a favorite topic of ours at Buffer. We were blown away by the response of our amazing fans and all the incredible information that was shared!

For all things #bufferchat: Visit the #bufferchat home page for recaps, roundups, and the upcoming schedule!
