With fall in full swing, many of us find ourselves making plans to go to social media conferences. With that said, there have been a lot of twitter parties lately to help us all get ‘in the mood’. There have been some great sponsors and some great prizes to be won on-line if you just participate. Twitter parties are a way for you to connect to other people and companies on Twitter. Companies are finding the benefits of engaging followers and running contests and giveaways. I have witnessed Microsoft give away computers, vacation resorts give away 7 day stays, publishers give away books, conferences organizers give away all-access passes and much more, much more.
The problem for some of you is that you just. don’t. know. how to get involved when those twitter party tweets start appearing in your twitter stream. Well, your wish has been granted, #LinkedMoms Chat will host a twitter party to help you get started and get more engaged on twitter. We will even have some prizes that you can win!
Paula and I are veterans of twitter parties/chats and we want to show you how to enjoy this engaging, entertaining and informative format. We will discuss the ins and outs of participating in a twitter party, why you want to join, who you can meet and why twitter parties enrich the Twitter experience. We will also be discussing various tools that you can use to help you keep track of the conversations and also discuss basic etiquette so you are ‘in the know’.
Join us Wednesday, September 19th at 8 pm EST, 7 pm CST, 5 PST by following the #LinkedMoms hashtag.
We also encourage our veteran twitter party attendees to join the conversation and give your suggestions on how to make this experience more enjoyable and less confusing. If you have been to at least one party (or at least lurked at one), please take our poll below.
Please use the hashtags at the end of all of your tweets to be included in the chat and to be eligible to win prizes from some of our brand buddies! We have books, 3M products, Club House gift packs & more.
