Join me for a Twitter chat

It’s a wired world. And next week, we are going to be launching our first Twitter chat for CCJ. I’ll be taking questions on the current “liter fever” wars raging in the trucking industry today. OEMs are increasingly pushing 13-liter power options, touting comparable horsepower ranges and increased fuel economy as the primary reasons. But there are still plenty of truckers out there who view 13-liter engines as “disposable” engines, arguing that the increased fuel economy is offset by shorter lifespans out in the field.

What you think? Or do you have an opinion on the matter? Either way, let us know. Follow me @JackRobertsCCJ and the magazine @ccjnow.

Click here for more information and to sign up for a reminder about the chat — or to submit questions if you can’t attend the live event.

Also, here is a tutorial for those of you who may be new to Twitter.
