Q: What are Twitter Parties?
A: Twitter parties are fun, fast-paced, live events held on Twitter. They are usually an hour or two in length and have a certain topic or theme that draws people to them. All attendees need to do is get a free Twitter account. The parties are free to attend. Users then become part of the fun by tweeting a specific #hashtag (or keyword) in each tweet they send during the event. For attendees, Twitter parties and chats are entertaining, informative, and interactive. For companies, they are a way to generate buzz for products and services, engage consumers in real-time, get feedback from users, and increase followers, subscribers and web site traffic.

Q: Do Twitter Parties really work in expanding my company's or brand's visibility?
A: Yes! According to Twitter, there are approximately 500+ million Twitter users sending 400 million tweets per day. Twitter parties are unique in that you are not simply advertising your brand or selling your products. You are asking users to join you in a fun, interactive event where they can learn, have fun and possibly win a sample of your product. Someone who is engaged in a conversation with you is more willing to listen to your message and welcome it. You'll also find an increase in followers, mail list signups, web site traffic, and product inquires before, during and after the party. Creating an event that you can promote beforehand also helps generate buzz about your business, in ways that simply tweeting about your products or industry cannot.
