Love Twitter? Love travel? Love winning free flights? Yes, me too. Read on to combine all three…
On Tuesday (June 17th) I’ll be joining Air France UK and Jayney Travels to host a Twitter party, #AirFranceTravel. We’re going to be chatting about all the places we want to travel with a focus on travel to South America. (Come on, who doesn’t want to go to South America!?)
Not only will we be getting some inspiration for our next adventures but Air France are also giving away a pair of return flights to anywhere in Europe! You just need to get involved with the chat and use the hashtag #AirFranceTravel to win.

If you aren’t familiar with Twitter chats, allow me to fill you in on the details.
WHAT IS A TWITTER CHAT?
A Twitter chat is an organized chat on Twitter where a bunch of like-minded people get together for about an hour to chat about a specific topic. You use a hashtag, in this case #KLMinspiredtravel, 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.
WHAT’S A TWITTER CHAT HOST?
There will be questions during the Twitter chat, usually about 10 minutes apart, so we stay on topic. I will be joining @AirFranceUK and @JayneyTravels to send the questions out at specific times and will be around to answer questions and keep the conversation moving.
TIPS FOR A TWITTER CHAT
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.
