Join GMI Tonight On Twitter For #GMChat
GMI takes the conversation to Twitter every Tuesday.
August 9, 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. GM Earnings Call Was today - Investors got to drive the XTS and ATS!
2. Cadillac teased the ATS - What do you think of it?
3. Regal GS pricing was announced
Tonight GMI will be launching a new segment in #GMChat called "Ask GMI." Here at GMI we obtain a tremendous amount of inside information, much of which is never published simply because there isn't enough to merit an entire article. If you have a nagging question about a future product, ask us and we'll try to answer.
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
