I’m going to admit to you that I might have an obsession with the little blue bird. Yep that one, you know … *whispers*
However, it is a great marketing tool and shitloads of fun. I’m just beginning to understand the party part of it and how #hashtags work. I’ve tried several times to go to #wineparty on Friday night but those twitter whores over there just go too fast or the drinks at my end slow me down, either way after about 20 minutes I’m so lost I give up and go back to my usual activities. But this week my new bestie Lucy @ My Life As Lucille said we should have a party our selves, for the other blog I contribute to, with the great group of bloggers we call The Epistolarians.
So Thursday night we had a play, with ear pressed to the phone and fingers fairly flying we had a twitter party using the hashtag #Epistolarians…. (cheap plug, you should join us next Thursday) and it was super fun and a success. Her next goal was to get me to #wineparty and to enjoy it. ‘But I can’t keep uuuuppppppp’, I whined. ‘OH Good God,’ Lucy rolled her eyes and said ‘Get tweet deck or tweet grid’ ..Que? (spanish for UH?) Apparently these are websites that help you keep up by allowing multiple feeds. Well this sounded like something I could get into and I so had a little look see.
And this my friends is what I saw!
Did you guys KNOW about this SHIT? It’s DA BOMB Diggity!
Anyway after I picked my face up off the floor, I set up my feed and no one heard from me since, except on twitter.
For the sake of the children
On a side note, if you like twitter, try tweet deck or tweet grid… you will never go back. Oops I’ve said too much….again.
I have been so utterly confounded by how to attend a Twitter party, that I tried once and ran away and hid. Now you show me there’s an organized, easy way to do it. I’m not sure if I should thank you or curse you. Of course, that grid thing looks seriously ominous, so maybe I’ll continue to pretend I don’t know it exists.
Thanks for hosting the Hook Up!
It’s an addiction alright but so much fun in one small place
I love tweetgrid, I just need to find time for my addictions! 🙂 So, what’s the requirements to join your #Epistolarians twitter party? I know I’m not cool enough, but maybe I could work on that?
we will ramp it back up again…you can join of course
I am trying to do the Twitter thing, but it just goes so fast I find it overwhelming! Might have to try one of those sites, but that almost seems even more overwhelming to have several different streams open like that! (I usually do the SITS Sharefest on Saturday morning – maybe I’ll try it then.)
