At first, I thought, "Wow, why can't you do this with IFTTT.com?" But then Dana clarified....this is a chat that took place in the past. I've often used IFTTT.com in combination with OneNote, Evernote, or GoogleSheets to capture tweets as they happened (I set it up ahead of a twitter chat).
What was interesting was how to capture tweets from a past twitter chat? One approach that I stumbled upon--after running into various services that wanted to charge me for the service
As you might guess, I took advantage of the easy version (TAGS v6.1). And, to be honest, it was pretty easy. You can watch a video about TAGS:
Here are the steps I followed:

- Be sure to SETUP TWITTER ACCESS, add your hashtag search term (use the dropdown to select something different).
- Be sure to RUN NOW! and then add summary and dashboard...you'll get awesome data like:

TAGS is pretty awesome! Thanks to mhawksey, TAGS creator!!!!
