Twitter parties are a great way to win free prizes!
What is a Twitter Party?
Twitter parties are sponsored chats on twitter that offer prizes to guests who participate during the chat using a specific #hashtag in each tweet. For instance I just hosted a #TruMooMilk Twitter party! In order for me to see all of the guests who are participating they MUST use #TruMooMilk in each and every tweet. Without the # symbol before the designated words “TruMooMilk” I would not be able to see them, and they would not be eligible to win prizes. When using a hashtag or # symbol in front of your word, do NOT add a space. The combination of the 2 create a link on twitter!
How to join a Twitter Party ?
To join a Twitter Party you must first create a Twitter Account. Head HERE to get started on your free account.
Once you have created an account and chosen your Twitter name, you will notice the symbol @ in front of your Twitter name, also known as your Twitter handle. The @ symbol is your way of speaking directly to someone, with out the @ symbol in front of the Twitter handle, whom ever it is you are trying to chat with will not be notified that you are speaking to them and they will not get your message. My Twitter handle/Twitter name is @couponcrazymom. So anytime someone wants to direct a question or comment to me they must us the @ symbol to connect!
How to attend a Twitter Party?
You also need to know your Twitter URL. A URL always starts with HTTP:// – My Twitter URL is http://twitter.com/couponcrazymom
You can find your Twitter URL by heading to your Twitter Profile by clicking on the “ME” tab in the top of the page. You will find your Twitter URL in the search bar.
You can find a list of Twitter Party Calendar links below. My favorite is mommyblogexpert.com because it is updated daily with the date, time, who to follow, & prize listing, along with what #Hashtag to use to chat with everyone & be eligible to win.
