Join GMI Tonight On Twitter For #GMChat
GMI takes the conversation to Twitter every Tuesday.
August 30, 2011

In an effort to participate in the ever-growing automotive industry presence on social media outlet Twitter, GMI founded #GMChat several weeks ago. GM Chat is a new hashtag based chat hosted by GMInsideNews every Tuesday evening between the hours of 9:00 - 11:00 PM EST.
Thus far #GMChat has been very successful, bringing in all types of automotive interests. Even some GM employees (many of whom are very active on Twitter) have participated in the chat.
Tonight's topics, like every week, will follow closely what the news from the last week has brought us in regards to GM. See below:
1. Cadillac has formally announced the ELR (production Converj). They also revealed the Ciel Concept. Should they build it?
2. This week GM announced several minor tweaks to the 2012 Silverado lineup. Is it enough to remain competitive?
3. We drove the Regal GS - twice. It really is a real performance car.
4. "In the Garage" segment. Alex has a 2012 SRX and previously had a 2012 Cruze Eco.
How do I participate in #GMChat?
Well, you have to be a Twitter user first. Once you are on Twitter, be sure to follow the @GMInsideNews account. When you see us tweet out the first topic, just chime in by tweeting with the hashtag (#GMChat) in your tweet.
We recommend that user utilize a program such as TweetDeck and create a column for the #GMChat hashtag so you can follow the whole conversation.
What is a hashtag?
It is simply a segment of characters--in our case #GMChat--that allows everyone to follow the chat that wishes too.
I come to GMI to discuss GM/automotive!
And we're glad you do! GMI has found that many of our readers are already on Twitter. #GMChat is simply an extension of GMI into a new medium. We will NEVER release information exclusively on #GMChat. It will always be here on the site first.
Can I just follow the #GMChat?
Yes. You can go here and watch the #GMChat live.
We hope to see you tonight! -Nick
