It’s going to be the perfect chat to get you into the festive spirit – and with a healthy dose of wanderlust of course!

Are you new to Twitter chats?
If you’re wondering what on earth I’m talking about with a Twitter chat then let me explain.
A Twitter chat is an organised chat on Twitter where we get together for about an hour to chat about a specific topic. You use a hashtag, in this case #GocoTalks, so everyone can follow the conversation without being interrupted by tweets from other people. The hashtag also allows you to see the tweets of people you don’t follow.
If you really want to be on the ball during a Twitter chat then it’s best to use a platform like Hootsuite or Tweetdeck. My personal favourite is Tweetdeck. You can set up a search stream for the hashtag and easily follow along without getting lost. Tweetdeck is free and really easy to use.
I hope you can join us for the chat. If you have any questions, just pop them in the comments below and I’ll get back to you.
