How to be a Twerrific Twitter Party Guest (and attract followers, JV Partners & new customers)

The Twitter event of the year is only a couple days away, and the response for the #GaryLoperTwitterParty has been absolutely amazing.  With all the attendees who will be spending the afternoon with us, the energy in this tweet stream will be electric.

Be sure to check out my previous blogs on how to use Twitter Chat apps for the best way to keep up with the flow of conversations.  As well as the reasons you should attend – if you’d have not decided yet.

I would like to suggest some guidelines we all can follow to enhance the experience for everyone:

·         Respect Everyone

With the diversity of our Twitter communities it is important to Give respect to everyone, and think before you tweet to make sure that nobody will be hurt by your message. Tweet Positively.

·         Be Helpful

Everyone can be a co-host of the Twitter Party.  Look for ways to help others just joining the party, and especially those who this is their first Twitter Chat/Party.  Share tips, links to the blogs I’ve posted with tips.

·         RT Generously

ReTweeting (RT) is a huge compliment to the person who created the tweet. RTing is an effective way to make a favorable impression to the author, and everyone else at the party, everyone will be watching everything.

·         Create Conversations

Watch the responses of others, and make a comment to create a conversation, just as in other parties there are always side conversations going on in addition to the current topic.  Enjoy, Engagement & Entertain.

·         Stay on Topic

There are going to be plenty of planned opportunities for everyone to share their blogs, freebies, products & services.  Please respect the current topics and wait until you see the #MarketPlace hashtag with the question asking for these promotional messages.  Several #Marketplace segments are scheduled throughout the afternoon to create a good blend of conversation, networking, marketing & more.

·         Follow Up

The tweet stream will be flowing fast all afternoon, and to help you keep track of the conversations and connections you will want to follow up with, so try some of these tips:  * Keep a note pad to record the name and topic of the person you want to know more about & connect with.  * Favorite the tweet as a reminder and then go back to your Favs, and send a follow-up message * or email the tweet to yourself as a reminder.

·         Follow the Suggested Tweet Limits

It is very easy to get excited and get involved in great conversations, and RTing so often that you do not realize that you are unable to tweet any more – because you exceeded Twitter API limits and you’ll be in Twitter Jail . . . Twitter’s time out.  It will take an hour to reset, and allow you to tweet again with your account.  We suggest you watch your tweets, and limit to 50 to 75 tweets per hour.  Over the afternoon this should keep you out of Twitter Jail, and stay engaged with the conversations.  Should you not be able to control yourself, set up a second twitter account with the same photo and similar name – this will help others to recognize you and your second account.  I will be tweeting from two or three accounts to make sure I will stay out of jail.

Thank you for agreeing to follow these guidelines, and making this a humongous success on every level possible for everyone who attends.

Enjoy, Engage, Entertain, Enhance & Happy Tweeting!
