USEFUL TWITTER CHAT CLIENTS
TweetChat: This is my favourite so far. Very simple to use. Web-based, just enter the hashtag you want to follow, enter the chat room, and you don't have to keep adding the hashtag to every post because TweetChat does it for you.
TweetGrid: Also Web-based. You can participate in more than one chat at the same time but this means you have to enter the hashtag each time you post to make sure it goes to the right room. I find it enough of a challenge keeping up with ONE chat and can't imagine trying to participate in more than one, though.
TweetDeck: If you use this desktop app, then you can create a column that filters the hashtag/chat name.
