What is #TNI? All About Travellers’ Night In

This post is about #TNI – Travellers’ Night In on Twitter. If you don’t know what twitter is and don’t care, try reading these posts about walking on glaciers, watching water puppets, climbing mountains, or expressing your love using padlocks.

If you don’t know what twitter is and want to find out, read this beginner’s guide to twitter.

If you already tweet – read on!

What is #TNI?

Every Thursday on twitter, those who love to travel get together for a chat using the hashtag #TNI (originally Travelers’ Night In but until I develop an accent that makes me sound as cool as those Americans, I just can’t get myself to drop that second “L.”)

It’s coordinated by the friendly people at ZipSetGo and has a number of “hosts” each week. Each host tweets out one predetermined question every ten minutes until they’ve reached a full ten. Sometimes, you’ll see another hashtag (eg #LoveUK), which means that the event is “sponsored” and you have a chance of winning a prize if you use both hashtags.

An Informal Chat

Drop in whenever you like, answer one, two or all of the questions, however you see fit. Just make sure to tag your tweet #TNI so that everyone can pick it up.

Southeast Asia

This week the theme is southeast Asia* –  a really inspiring part of the world. So, log on and join in. You can find me on twitter at @insidetravellab.

#TNI takes place at:

3.30 – 5.00 EST

Which translates to

8.30 – 10.00 pm – GMT – London, Lisbon etc

9.30 – 11.00 pm – Paris, Madrid, etc

2.30 – 4 am (ouch!) in Bangkok

6.30 – 8 am (needs dedication) in Sydney

And so on…

If you’re a real twitterati, follow the #TNI twitter grid here.

*And if you’re worried about looking like an idiot because you’re not quite sure what the term “southeast Asia” covers, it’s generally accepted to be south of China, east of India and north of Australia. See you soon on #TNI Travellers’ Night In!
