LitChatLogo-4thAnniversary

Our #litchat friends are so talented. Take a look at this delightful video salute from our own Marianne G. Petrino, aka @ninetiger.

This week LitChat is celebrating our fourth anniversary on Twitter. We’re celebrating a week early, since we already have a terrific guest host scheduled for next week (Michael Kimball will discuss his new novel, Big Ray). LitChat’s first tweet appeared on January 29, 2009 announcing, “LitChat is all books. All the time. We exist to bring readers and writers together for fun and fast 1-hour Twitter chats, M-F, 4 pm est. Join us.” As much as we love reading, writing and talking about books, we just couldn’t keep up with a daily conversation, so we reduced the frequency to Monday, Wednesday and Friday after the second month.

In the four years since LitChat began, Twitter has grown from a small hive of pioneering microbloggers to a global colony of trendsetters, brand divas, politicos, and everything in between. LitChat is proud to be a part of the phenomenon that is Twitter. But more so, we are thrilled to have helped authors spread the word about their books through insightful literary discussion with intelligent and interesting people from around the world.

Join us in #litchat on Friday, 4 p.m. ET as we celebrate our fourth anniversary with author guest hosts from previous years.
