“Millennials want to feel like they are directly a part of the conversation and want to have their voices and opinions heard. #MillennialTalk provides this,” says host Chelsea Krost.

Every Tuesday night, Millennials look forward to partying with television and radio talk show host Chelsea Krost—but not in ways most parents would expect. http://www.chelseakrost.com.
Krost, who is a Millennial herself, has been hosting her own radio talk show for the past seven years and found Twitter to be an easy way to connect with listeners while on air. Wanting to expand upon their discussions, Krost decided to host #MillennialTalk Twitter Chat. Each week, a different expert weighs in on various topics. Since the parties began, topics have included: How to Monetize Your Blog; Cyber Security; How to Build a Business Plan; How to Be Successful in Your Job Hunt; Resume and Interview Tips; Relationships; How to Build Your Own Personal Brand, and How to Maximize Twitter to Build Your Brand, among others.
“All of my Twitter parties are centered on information sharing. They are packed with great tips, advice, and knowledge,” Krost explained. “Plus, they offer extensive networking opportunities. Each week, the chats are consistently joined by new people, and many people have tweeted that it is the best place to network amongst their peers.” http://www.chelseakrost.com
During the hour-long discussions, followers often interact with each other and express their view points. “Millennials want to feel like they are directly a part of the conversation and want to have their voices and opinions heard. #MillennialTalk provides this,” Krost said.
After a recent party, one participant named Newsha tweeted, “Well that was fun! Really enjoyed my first #MillennialTalk experience! Can't wait for the next one :)”
At present, each #MillennialTalk chat is pulling in an average of 250 tweeps (individual twitter handles). Krost’s first party pulled in 18 million impressions and the numbers have only gone up since then, grossing 35 million impressions at last count. Paul Retsu Nguyen, a regular participant, looks forward to the parties. After one party, he tweeted, “Now I really can’t wait for next week’s #MillennialTalk. It just gets better every week!!! Special thanks to @ChelseaKrost #HostOfTheYear.”
Krost’s experience comes from helping an array of big name brands—from Kotex to MasterCard to Intel–create, host, and promote Twitter parties and campaigns. Based on her success, Krost has found Twitter parties to be a great way for brands to derive information and keep a pulse on the Millennial generation (or Generation Y).
