VintageVWChat, FAQ and next live chat.

Hello Vintage VW friends. If you were able to take part last week, you already know about the first VintageVWChat.

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 5.14.11 at 7-8 PM Pacific Standard Time. All you have to do is post a tweet and tag it with the hashtag #VintageVWChat.

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.

Example: @erokCom added the hashtag before the word “#VintageVWChat” in his message. The word is now a link to search results for all Tweets containing “#VintageVWChat” in the message.

Using hashtags:

  • 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.

We hope you are able to join the conversation on 5.14.11 at 7-8 PM Pacific Standard Time. If you don’t have a Twitter account, you can create one for free by clicking here!
