You may have seen, or even joined, the Gartner Chat on Twitter (#GartnerChat) on Tuesday, Oct. 4.  The live event, discussing businesses and social media, was heavily promoted by Gartner, and turned out to be a largely successful event with lots of conversation and interaction during the live chat.

Even if people didn’t engage in the conversation, they could follow the hashtag for insight on various topics affecting business leaders using social media today.

What do you think of Twitter live chats?  Is this something that you see catching on, and being utilized more by IT leaders (Ripe), or is this a trend that will fade away (Hype)?

If you joined the Gartner Chat, we’d love to hear your feedback in the comments below.
