@Barefootmomma is hosting a Twitter party with Star50 Handbags on May 18, 2010. Here are the details and instructions for how to participate in a Twitter party.
You say you don’t know how to participate in a Twitter party. Here are some basic things to get you started.
Twitter Parties are simple and tons of fun – think of a group chat where all of your friends on Twitter can join in the discussion. To spice things up, the more tweets you have during the Twitter Party, the greater chances you have of winning a great prize, including gift cards
1. Sign up for a Twitter account at www.twitter.com
For Tweet Chat: login into your Twitter account with the button on the top right of the homepage. Then type the hashtag (party name) that will be used for the party.
For Tweet Grid: Make sure you on the Party tab and then fill in the hashtag, the Twitter user names of the party hosts, and your Twitter user name. If you don’t know the Twitter user names of the hosts just leave that box blank.
What is a hashtag? It is the name of the party. Usually you will be # in front of the name. By using one of the sites above all you need to do is put the name of the party in and you will see all of the posts by everyone who is at the party.
3. Watch what everyone is saying at the party. You will learn what you need to do to win. Sometimes it is just chatting, other times it is answering a question from the host.
4. Learn to retweet and follow people. Here are some basic instructions I wrote on using Twitter.
