Our first addition to bringing more air-cooled content your way, is #VintageVWChat on twitter. Say what? Twitter is remarkable at connecting people with similar interest. Our newest team member, Eric noticed the lack of “air-cooled” communication and started Vintage VW Chat. A few have taken place, we loved it and now oneighturbo.com will be sponsoring them.
Mark your calendars! Date, time and directions after the jump.
What is VintageVWChat? It’s a live global conversation that anyone can take part in. Are you restoring a Vintage Volkswagen Beetle or Bus? Just purchased your first VW and have no idea where to start? Have a daily driver? Curious about Vintage Volkswagens? Just want to say hello? Our next live chat will be 5.28.11 at 7-8 PM PST. All you have to do is post a tweet and tag it with the hashtag #VintageVWChat.

A Special #VintageVWChatTweeter!
The # symbol, called a hashtag, is used to mark keywords or topics in a Tweet. It was created organically by Twitter users as a way to categorize messages.
Hashtags: helping you find interesting Tweets:
- People use the hashtag symbol # before relevant keywords in their Tweet to categorize those Tweets to show more easily in Twitter Search.
- Clicking on a hashtagged word in any message shows you all other Tweets in that category.
- Hashtags can occur anywhere in the Tweet.
- Hashtagged words that become very popular are often Trending Topics.
- If Tweet with a hashtag on a public account, anyone who does a search for that hashtag may find your Tweet.
- Don’t #spam #with #hashtags. Don’t over-tag a single Tweet. (Best practices recommend using no more than 3 hashtags per Tweet.)
- Use hashtags only on Tweets relevant to the topic.
