gtchat is a discussion group on Twitter for parents, teachers and gifted advocates from all over the world to share resources, ideas, experiences and new ways of thinking about gifted issues   #gtchat was founded by Deborah Mersino see Ingeniosus website http://www.ingeniosus.net/gtchat and to read transcripts of past sessions see http://www.ingeniosus.net/gtchat-transcripts

In 2012  Deborah Mersino, has passed the moderator baton of #gtchat to the very capable hands of Lisa Conrad. GT Chat is powered by Texas Association for the Gifted and Talented and all the details can be found on their page at http://www.txgifted.org/gtchat

After gtchat some of the participants enjoy informal and often humorous chat and often we have virtual meals, parties or other celebrations. I usually illustrate these chats and some of them turn into a series of posts or become the topics of  booklets eg. The Twitter Bird wedding and the Paws for Poise Parlour
