AgrichatUK was started back in 2011, founded by Edward Morgan, Charles Tassell, Simon Haley and Jez Fredenburgh. Hosted by Will Wilson. It has grown significantly in the last five years, now boasting an impressive 20,369 followers and growing by the day.
It was the first agricultural based hashtag on Twitter, the premise being a place where people involved in agriculture can get together, to share ideas, discuss and debate. A place to connect with people from all different parts of the industry, from different parts of the country.
I believe it is such a brilliant idea, a place where you can come and talk with other people, all connected by the same thing, agriculture. As we all know, agriculture can be a lonely business, but with this, anyone can join in the discussion, have a chat, and it can really help. Plus, everyone is so friendly and welcoming.
From debating the hot topics in the farming world, to discussing the past, present and future of agriculture, mental health and succession. There’s a new topic every week, special guests and co-hosts, you will never be bored.
Personally I enjoy reading others opinions on the topics, as well as contributing with my own. I can truly say I learn something new every week. It really shows how agriculture is changing and growing with social media, I never would’ve thought Twitter would be such a popular place for farming!
So make sure you join in for the SPECIAL AgrichatUK TONIGHT at 8pm debating the EU Referendum! Leave me a comment and let me know if you do…
