Global #gtchat Powered by TAGT in 2016

gtchat 01052016 The Year Ahead


It’s a new year and #gtchat is now at a new day and time! Join us on Tuesdays at 8E/7C/6M/5P in the U.S. and on Wednesdays at 2PM (14.00) NZDT/Noon (12.00) AEDT/1 AM (1.00) in the UK. We realized that there could not be a perfect time for everyone which involves a global audience, so we polled our followers and this was the number 1 choice (87 votes). It was exciting to see many new faces at our first chat in the new time slot!

As is our custom, the first chat of the new year is a time to ask our participants what they would like to chat about in the upcoming year and who they’d like to see as guests in 2016. We received many excellent suggestions and will do our best to contact those who were mentioned. Several changes have been made to how #gtchat will proceed in the new year including no longer polling for topics. However, we think you’ll like the ones chosen (many of the suggestions from this chat have been added to the schedule) and we’re always willing to entertain new ones as well. A transcript of this chat may be found at Storify.
