Participate in our Twitter chats while you work, play, travel. We have arranged two chats during the #FASTAfrica action week.
How it works
Simply follow the hashtag and ask questions, listen and retweet. It is an opportunity to speak with others across Africa who are interested in the same topics, and bring the experience of your own country to a global audience with comments, questions and sharing links.
It works partly as an interview with a special guest, but it’s an open format that allows everyone to join in and shape the conversation. We hope to see digital journalists join as well.
If you organise your own #FASTAfrica chats, simply let us know and we can add them to this list.
