Tips About Twitter Parties
Sometimes Twitter parties can get a bit overwhelming with lots of people tweeting at once and retweeting others tweets. Don’t try to read all the tweets, if more pop up before you finish reading, don’t worry about it too much.
During the party, I will be asking questions preface with Q1, Q2 etc. Reply to the questions for all to see. If someone else’s answer inspires you to discuss, go right ahead! If you have a specific question during the blogathon, make sure to include @blogathon2 in it to make sure I see it. Questions will be asked about every 10 minutes or so and at least one winner will be announced in between each question.
One Last Twitter Tip
(whether you join the party or not)
Please make sure your twitter account has a unique image and not the generic twitter egg. You want to stand out. Your profile should also be filled out and I would recommend either including the name or url of your blog or at least that you are a blogger in your profile. Some of us like to follow back bloggers but not all twitter followers and if we can’t tell easily that you are a blogger, we may skip over it.
