What is a Twitter Party?
 Usually held live in the evenings, twitter parties typically last 1-2 hours and are a wonderful way for people to connect and discuss a topic of choice. Most twitter parties have an expert panelist and party host to keep the party on topic.

How does a Twitter Party Work?

Twitter users tweet with a specified Hashtag (#) for the party. The party host will announce the hashtag prior to the event. If you look at the twitter party calendar, parties are listed by the hashtag (#). Users use their tweet chat client to search for the hashtag and join in the conversation. Tweetdeck and Tweetgrid make following a twitter party much easier.

Benefits of a Twitter Party for Bloggers and Brands :-

Brands love them because they’re cheap, easy to put together and they have the potential to generate hundreds (if not thousands) of tweets about your brand in just a couple of hours. Customers love them because they’re non-intimidating, fun, and easy to access.
A Twitter party is a great enhancement to any company's social media marketing plan. It's a fun way to engage customers and prospects in real-time and get the word out about your brand. Here are some of the benefits to having a Twitter party:

For Brands:
  • Heightened awareness of a company's products and services
In the age of neck to neck competition its increasingly important for Brands to have a word out about their respective products out to masses in a short time. A twitter party does just that.
  • Increase in web site traffic before, during and after event
It automatically generates viewership to the brands website and gives publicity. There is also a gain in Twitter or Facebook followers or subscribers to the e-mailing list .
  • Low-cost advertising method
Cost cutting just became easy with this cheap way of advertising products.

  • Great way to engage customers and get them talking about your brand
Announcing giveaways and contests can increase the participation of the masses. Giveaways during a Twitter party help lend a ‘party atmosphere’ to the discussion. They draw people to the discussion and in some cases, help spur conversation about the brand involved. Mentioning a prize can lead to a discussion about the product, a segue to talking more about the brand and what it has to offer.

    For Bloggers:As a blogger, no one can ever accomplish anything alone.  Whoever says any different in my opinion is not genuinely looking at blogging as a community effort. Yes, you may have your own site and wear various hats (Editor, Publisher, Coder, etc) the truth is, the people that read your stories and share your posts are part of your community. We are all doing it together and so twitter parties are an excellent way of coming in together with a common goal, purpose or interest.

  • Networking, Networking and Networking
A bloggers needs wide accessibility and coverage for readership and twitter parties provide a way to enjoy the benefits of discovering new brands and staying loyal to the older ones, finding new friends and gaining new followers to your blog.

  • Prospects of Collaboration
Get a chance to work with the brands you love the most or simply try out new ones and do reviews.

  • Enjoy Freebies and Contests
Win exciting new products and discounts on various product offers.

So leave the LBD and fancy shoes at home. Twitter parties are all about comfy clothes, slippers, no makeup, a glass of wine and… whooping it up on your monitor!
