date and time of chats is determined by the organizer of the chat.
A lot of times they poll those on the hashtag about what day and
time they would prefer. Most chats are held once a week. There are
exceptions such as #mathchat which has a rerun on another day.
Some chats will occur twice in the same day to aid different time
zones. Some of these chats are: #edchat, and #ELTchat
In most chats there is a poll set up a few days before the actual
chat. The poll lists 5 or so suggested topics. The one with the
most votes is the one that is the topic for that week's chat.

the US) and the second one is 7 pm EST) where I am a proud member of
moderator team we have a poll on Sunday. We have generally five proposed
topics. The one that gets the most votes is the 7pm chat topic and
the runner-up is the noon chat topic. The poll closes about 1 hour
before the noon chat begins.
The key is to get people to use the chat hashtag to stay in contact
during the week. People know the time and date by tweeting it out
using the chat hashtag.
The moderator of the chat facilitates the topic. Some chats
have a guided question format and others are free flowing.
Most chats allow you to share information and sites that are
pertinent to the topic.
