First of all, what the heck is a Twitter party? In short, it’s a scheduled meet-up on Twitter in which all of the participants use the same hashtag in order to stay in one big conversation.
Ok, now that you know what a Twitter party is, let me tell show you what it looked like:
It didn’t really work. I could hardly keep up in Tweetgrid, the posts were coming in so fast. I finally got to the point that I accepted that I would only be sipping at the stream, and tried to not fall too far behind.
I’ll admit, I was hoping to win one of the three different $100 Target gift cards that were up for grabs. That would buy a good amount of groceries or even a few sets of work clothes. Alas, it wasn’t meant to be.
All in all, I had a good time, and a couple of laughs, talking about Dr. Who (Eccleston was better, IMO, but Smith is good… But that CHIN!) with some of the other participants. I also saw at least one, maybe two other dad bloggers in the mix.
I just have to figure out a way to not drown in the sheer volume of tweets. Got any ideas?
