#CultureTrav Twitter Chat


#CultureTrav Twitter Chat 101:

The goal of the #CultureTrav Twitter chat is to hear perspectives and stories from fellow travelers, especially as it pertains to cultural immersion! I’ve always enjoyed hearing how people personally experience travel – how we dissect cultural similarities and differences, bridge language gaps, try new things (new cuisines), develop friendships during travel, and much more. 

Whether you’re a seasoned traveler, a nomad, an expat, enjoy traveling alone or with family/friends, or even just go leisurely through part-time travel like I do, you’ll be sure to have great tips to share with others.

Weekly Chat Details:

  1. Follow us (me, co-host @JLipowski and co-host @travelsustains) on Twitter for important updates and questions. If you have any questions, please feel free to direct message us on Twitter!
  2. If you don’t have a Twitter account but are interested in reading our chat recaps, you can visit Storify!
  3. Prepare ahead of time. You can find updated chat questions on this page (usually a few days before chat time). Since the questions will be posted before the chat, you can brainstorm which photos or videos to share, and also link to applicable blog posts you may have on the topic!
  4. How the chat Q&A works:
    As the chat starts, questions come in 5-minute intervals starting at 2:30 PM EST and ending at 3:00 PM EST.
    To reply to questions (these are indicated with a “Q”) you reply with an “A”
    For example:
    Q1: “Where did you have the best pasta? Tell us a story! #CultureTrav
    “A1: In Rome at this little restaurant recommended by local friends! #CultureTrav
  5. Join us on Thursdays, 2:30 pm EST* (check your local time)
  6. Use the hashtag, #CultureTrav, with every tweet, so that others can see your valuable advice and photos!
  7. Join our Facebook group to stay connected after the chat ends. Feel free to ask questions, give advice about destinations or topics, share your own blog posts and photos, and chat with like-minded travelers!
  8. Become a guest host! Have an idea for a (future) topic? Email me directly!
