GoTexan sponsors Texas Twitter Tuesday on the first Tuesday of each month. Anyone interested in Texas wine is welcome to participate, whether wine growers, vintners, sommeliers, or just casual drinkers.
Each month a featured guest with an expertise in Texas wine is chosen to lead. The featured guests include vineyard owners, wine experts, and others who are eager to answer your questions.
The first Texas Twitter Tuesday was held in February 2011 to great success. Dates for 2011 are February 1, March 1, April 5, May 3, June 7, July 5, August 2, September 6, October 4, November 1, and December 6.
To participate in Texas Twitter Tuesday, sign up for Twitter (it's free) or log on to your current Twitter account. Go to the Tweetchat room which has been set up for Texas Twitter Tuesdays. Read what others are saying, add your own comments and questions, and enjoy. Use the hashtag #GOTEXAN with your tweets.
