Tweet! Tweet!

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!
