Twitter Chats ~ All Things Latino

twitter background2One of my favorite social media platforms is still … Twitter. One of the reasons I enjoy it is because I have developed some precious friendships via Twitter. In addition, most of my news comes from Twitter because I can seek out the topics I want to learn about. It is one place I found comfort in connecting to other Latinos who appreciate the culture and can share valuable information about what’s happening RIGHT NOW.  It’s a fast-paced information highway that can be used for good or evil. 😉 Let’s use it for good gente.

[box border=”full”]If you are not on Twitter yet, now is a great time to join. Simply go to and sign up. You can change your user name so don’t get hung up on what it will be. Once you have done that consider visiting fellow San Antonio blogger Geekette Bits and her 3 part series of Twitter 101: Friends and Followers to learn more. [/box]

Back to using Twitter for good … First, follow me at @quemeanswhat (wink) I also tweet at @mendezgonzales, if you can’t get enough.  Second, take a look at the Twitter Chats happening this week about Latino Culture and Community:

If you are not ready to jump right in and chat but want to ‘listen and observe’, simply type in the hashtag (#) to each party at the time of the party and follow along.

Yes, two of these overlap one another. Sometimes we Twitter Party Hop. It’s okay. Just don’t be rude and confuse the hashtags. 😉 It can be a challenge to give your attention to more than one conversation at a time. Take your time.

There you go. Now, get to tweeting. Make new friends, share, learn and ENJOY the conversations! If there are any that I am missing, please let me know in the comments, gracias!
