Love to travel? Love watching and/or playing sports? Then join me and my friends from the #CultureTrav Twitter chat for our latest online discussion, Thursday, September 10 at 2:30 EDT. We’ll combine both topics to talk about incorporating sports in your travels.
If you’re new to Twitter chats, they’re easy to follow along and contribute comments. Using Tweetdeck, search the hashtag #CultureTrav, then add that column to your feed. You’ll now be able to follow every tweet that enters the conversation in the chat. Questions are posted every five minutes (labeled Q1, Q2, and so forth) by me (@e_scal) and my fellow co-hosts. Today, that’s Jessica Lipowski (@jlipowski), Char Stoever (@Char_JS), and Casey Morton (@somasurf).
All you do is reply to our tweets, using the #CultureTrav hashtag and labeling your answers A1, A2, and so forth. Our chat is a half-hour in length, and we encourage the use of photos and/or videos in your responses, particularly with this topic!
