twitter party how-to

Twitter events are nothing to fear!
With a few pointers, you will rock even your FIRST Twitter event!

 

Here's how:

  • visit relevant sites and pages and bring questions, comments or concerns to the event
  • make sure you have RSVP'd to the event if you want to win prizes (if prizes are offered!)
  • be sure to follow the host and all of the panelists so you don't miss a beat!
  • use multiple hashtags: only if it’s relevant, and if you think others would be interested-- #parents / #ece [early childhood education] / #teachers / #weteach [forum members] / #math / #literacy / #kidlit / #science / #STEM / #kinderchat [kindergarten teachers]
  • add photos: photos are FUN—so add them if you can!
  • relax, and have a good time—there’s no wrong way here! side conversations are okay!

 

QUICK NOTE:

If you haven't registered for Twitter, do so BEFORE the event!

And once you're on Twitter, get comfortable with your account by following these important tips: 

 

  • Follow back the people who are following you
  • Retweet (RT) the things you find interesting to engage in dialogue and build relationships. 
  • Add a hashtag (#) so your tweets will come up in searches such as #ece for early childhood education
  • Create Twitter lists to follow a group of people: follow all of our we teach members by following the we teach Twitter list
  • Block and unfollow spam Tweeters
  • Use the same etiquette you would use in real life!
  • Use direct message (DM) when having a private conversation or sharing email addresses
