The chat hosting solution you've been looking for
JotCast is the platform you need to help you connect with your audience - and for them to connect with each other.

Effective Moderation Features
Using the moderation tools JotCast offers puts you in control of the conversation at all times. Keep your discussions on-topic and keep your messaging on-brand while cutting out distractions and disruptions. Your live events can stay both fun and focused, leaving your audience with memorable and extraordinary experiences.
Even in a group chat, JotCast's private message feature lets you talk with participants one-on-one. These individual conversations can happen between a moderator and a user, or between two moderators. Moderators also have the option to allow two users to communicate directly with each other, fostering connection and community within the chat. Use private messaging to troubleshoot an issue with an individual participant without derailing the chat, or to provide a more personal touch to your events.
Real-time Twitter integration
JotCast makes it easy to curate tweets in real-time. You can search for tweets and publish them directly from the moderator panel, or import them from Twitter by tracking users and hashtags. You control whether tweets are automatically published to your event, or if moderators should manually review them first. JotCast lets you harness the power of social media to keep your event fresh and up to date, with access to breaking news and the latest relevant content.

Add JotCast alongside your videos to fully enhance your live events.
JotCast takes chats to the next level by including interactive features. Moderators can create polls and quizzes for the audience to participate in, enabling them to receive instant feedback, and adding a dynamic aspect to the event. Moderators can also choose to enable reactions, allowing users to add emojis to published messages. The peanut gallery lets users comment on published messages without affecting the flow of the chat, keeping your audience engaged at all times. And finally, JotCast's discussion board feature ensures the conversation can continue even after the live event ends, strengthening connections and the interest of the audience members.
