How does “#CMchat” work?
- The # symbol is called a “hashtag,” and can be used to mark keywords or topics on many Social Media platforms. By adding the ‘#’ sign before a string of text, the hashtag (#) helps categorize messages. If you have spent any time on Twitter, you have probably noticed that there are many conversations going on at the same time. By using a hashtag (#), you are able to filter through the noise and find folks who are singing your tune!
- “CM” stands for Country Music!
- “Chat” means conversation between anyone using “#CMchat” in a tweet who likes to listen, discuss, and share Country Music Industry information with other Country Music enthusiasts!
In addition to being a 24/7 hashtag community every Monday night on Twitter (beginning at 6pmPT/9pmET), #CMchat has an open source Q&A style discussion with Country Music celebrities, hosted by Jessica Northey. During this hour long conversation on Twitter, Jessica asks guests approximately ten questions for the first thirty minutes, and then the guests usually take questions from the entire community for the second half, with the format occasionally varying, dependent upon the guest. We also host interactive video chats on Google Plus called “Twangouts.”

Obviously, there is promotional value for any guest to be exposed to this community, but they are still taking time out of their busy schedules, so please do not drop URL links to your music/website, etc. from 6-7pm PST/9-10pm EST. That is pretty much the only thing we ask. It takes people away from the chat and is not fair to our guests … kind of like Kanye taking the mic from Taylor Swift. Sometimes we also get spammed, and just because it is on the hashtag (#), it doesn’t mean #CMchat controls it.
*Actual numbers are higher because we have only been tracking hashtag since December 9, 2012 through “Hashtracking.” We started #CMchat in May 2011 but Hashtracking didn’t exist for our first year and half, so you could realistically add 35% to the numbers, and it would still be a lowball. We are most likely well over 10 Billilion impression and 450,000 tweets.
Reach and impression information account for the people who saw, but might not have “joined,” the conversation, similar to billboards, magazines, or people watching television/listening to radio commercials. People are exposed to the tweet/post, but may just want to follow and read the posts.
