OK, before I go into my main post, which is about twitter chats, I’m going to quickly show you a cheeky haul of what I bought at Tesco yesterday in their Florence and Fred clothing section.
The monochrome skirt and bag are available online, I can’t find the lovely cat faced slippers on the website though, and the owl hat was in the sale.
I got the bag for every day use. The one I currently have is getting really tatty. I am going to transfer my things over today and do a ‘what’s in my bag’ tag, as I love reading those when others do them.
I’ve become really impressed with clothing at Tesco lately, they seem to be catering to women a little younger than before. Or that could be that I’m getting older! Whatever the reason, I’m finding myself spending more and more money there.
Okay, time to turn my attention to the ‘main topic’ of this post. Which is Twitter Chats. I just discovered twitter chats at the beginning of this month and I’ve made friends with some lovely people through them! If you’ve never tried them before, you should give them ago! It’s a mixture of learning and gossiping with other bloggers. Perfect.
What’s a Twitter Chat?
A Twitter Chat is when a group of people use a pre-discussed hashtag at a set time bring together a conversation in the style of a chatroom.
I could say, for example, at 8pm let’s all do a twitter chat and use #skinnedcartree. You would search for the hashtag at 8pm, (or just before) tweet your hellos including the hashtag in your tweet. Everyone that is joining will see your tweet, and you will see everyone else’s.
They usually have a host, one person asking certain questions, then you answer them and reply to other uses. It’s a great tool for learning and also networking.
When do Twitter Chats take place?
I’ve started to compile a calendar of when Twitter Chats are.
New Twitter Chat #socialbloggers.
I’ve been talking with Noor of Noor’s Place and we have decided to create our own twitter chat on Saturday evening at 6pm UK time (11pm Karachi time) as there is only one chat on a Saturday.
It’s the first one this Saturday, so the topic and questions of the chat haven’t been finalised yet! More details will come in my next post about.
I have a few questions I’d like to ask you guys about it.
1. What topics do you like to discuss.
2. Do you have a question you would like to ask?
