On the 4th October 8-9pm GMT the first #AbuseTalk will open on Twitter as a Twitter Chat. I am delighted to be hosting it and felt the need for there to be a dedicated time to discuss domestic abuse.
What is a Twitter chat?
“A Twitter chat is a public Twitter conversation around one unique hashtag. This hashtag allows you to follow the discussion and participate in it. Twitter chats are usually recurring and on specific topics to regularly connect people with these interests.” Find out more on this easy step guide.
Who can get involved?
Anyone can get involved, all you have to do is sign into Twitter on the dedicated time and tweet with the #AbuseTalk. The account @AbuseChat will retweet and be involved in the conversation. If you have any articles, blog posts, thoughts, feelings on domestic abuse then this is a space were you can express it.
Already we have authors, organisations, charities, businesses, individuals and experts involved. Please do go on and RT the advert post to build awareness for the opening.
It will then then continue to take place weekly on a Wednesday evening 8-9pm GMT and I hope in the future to bring guest hosts and also theme points of conversation. Pop it in your diary and do get in touch if you would like anymore information on the all new Twitter chat.
I look forward to joining you live and virtual on the 4th October. You can follow me on Twitter at @JenLGilmour as well.
