New to Twitter Parties?

What is a Twitter Party? A gathering of individuals on Twitter who follow a single conversation or subject using what are called hashtags.

What is a hashtag? A hashtag is the “#” sign. Perhaps because it looks like a hashbrown? No one can be sure. The hashtag for the Pregnancy Awareness Month Twitter Parties is #MayPAM. Whenever you tweet during the Pregnancy Awareness Month Twitter Parties to answer a contest question, ask a question, or make a comment, put #PAM at the beginning or end of your tweet.

Why do we use hashtags? If you login to Twitter and press the “Home” button, you will notice a search box in the right sidebar. If you enter #MayPAM in the box and press enter you will see all of the people participating in the Pregnancy Awareness Month Twitter parties and will be able to converse with them!

How do I enter contests? Login to Twitter and make sure you are following Pregnancy Awareness Month at http://www.twitter.com/pregawareness. Then watch both the Pregnancy Awareness Month tweets and when we post a contest, tweet back to us by pressing “reply” or tweeting to @PregAwareness.

Example Tweet: “@PregAwareness I love being pregnant!”

Putting the “@” sign in front of a Twitter user’s name sends the tweet to them.

What is a Retweet? Also abbreviated like this: RT, a Retweet is a copy of a tweet.

Tweet: @PregAwareness I love being pregnant!

tweet.

Retweet: RT @PregAwareness I love being pregnant!

Twitter lets you automatically Retweet posts. Be careful though, you only have 140 characters to use! Make it short and sweet.

    Do you have to be the first to answer? I tried a twitter party once and my computer is so slow that I don’t get the tweets for at least a minute. Ahhhhh!

    No, you do not have to be the first to answer. We understand that these twitter parties move fast and it’s luck of the draw who sees the questions, so we do not award the first to answer or comment. We choose a random winner from those that are participating in the discussion about each item we are giving away.

    I hope Twitter is up and running! I’ve been trying to get on and it’s “over capacity!” Grrr…
