What is a Twitter Party?

I had to stay on my toes {fingers really} tonight as I followed along in 4 different Twitter parties. Man was it crazy! I finally gave up on both TweetDeck and TweetGrid {both are Twitter search dashboards} and just jumped from tab to tab in my browser! Afterwards, I posted the one prize I won during the evening on Facebook and had a few responses asking what a Twitter party was. I got similar responses from the last 3 items I won and posted so I thought I would write a quick summary of what a Twitter party is.

What is a Twitter Party?

A Twitter party is a pretty fast moving, yet fun, virtual party. The parties typically last between 1 to 2 hours and are an exciting way to connect and discuss a topic of mutual interest. Most Twitter parties have an expert panelist{s} as well as a party host to keep the party on topic and moving right along.

Twitter users are asked to tweet with a specified Hashtag (#) for the party. The party host will announce the hashtag prior to the event. If you look at a Twitter party calendar {such as TweeParties}, parties are listed by the hashtag (#). Users can search for the hashtag and join in the conversation.

These parties are a great way to connect with others via Twitter and find followers with common interests. Often, there are great prizes given away by the party sponsors and host. Hence my four awesome prizes I have won so far on Twitter parties!

Join me on Twitter and follow along on the next party!
