GSMCHAT Explained

GSMCHAT (pronounced gee-ess-em-chat) is a form of online meetup called a "Twitter chat". We hold it every other Thursday and the topic is different every chat. People who handle social media for any government agency (and sometimes public sector) log on to Twitter to participate in the chat.

Participating in GSMCHAT is simple and it's a great way to start to learn about the socialgov community. 

It starts at 1pm PDT/ 3pm CDT/ 4pm EDT. All you have to do is log on to Twitter, search for #‎GSMCHAT, and be ready for a great conversation. We’ll be tweeting from @GovernmentSM.

Get ready by finding links to some of your own favorite resources (social media accounts, whitepapers, webinars, blogs, podcasts, studies, etc.) so you are ready to tweet links to others.
