I attended my first Twitter Party last night! I have been seeing Twitter Parties here and there and always wondered what they where all about. I have seen some where they offer "door prizes" and such, but never quite knew how they worked.
Yesterday I got an invitation from MyBlogSpark to the Big G "Girls´ Night Out" Twitter Party. I decided to give it a go. I RSVPed and all. The party was going to be about retro breakfast memories in honor of the retro cereal packages the Big G cereal company is releasing, available exclusively at Target stores now while supplies last.
The packages include Cheerios® (1956), Lucky Charms® (1989), Honey Nut Cheerios® (1984), Trix® (1968), and Cinnamon Toast Crunch® (1984). Each box is so retro and so cool!
When I got to the party I saw that they had their very own Custom Tweetgrid! I have never even heard of a Tweetgrid. It was so crazy. You had three columns of tweets all going at the same time. Wow it was hard to keep up with. It seemed like they had a hundred conversations going on at once. I lasted through over an hour of the party. I answered questions and had a few conversations, but then Hubby needed the computer and I took that as a blessed break. I got back on right as they finished up. The only thing I was a big confused about was that no prizes where given out. They did have a giveaway you had to enter on their site, but that was it.
I guess good conversation and sharing memories of childhood where what they where going for. I did enjoy it. I will be attending more Twitter Parties in the future. I just have to figure them out first. LOL! I did end up getting about 4 new Twitter followers though. I'm not to sure that is because of the party or the fact that they just saw me tweeting though.
Have you ever been to a Twitter Party? Can you give me any advice or insight of how it all works? I would greatly appreciate it!
