Well, you’re about to find out!
A twitter party is a fast and fun virtual party, using the twitter platform. Usually held in the evening, twitter parties typically last 1-2 hours and are a wonderful way for people to connect and discuss a topic of choice. Most twitter parties have an expert panelist and party host to keep the party on topic.
How does a twitter party work?
Twitter users tweet with a specified Hashtag (#) for the party. The party host will announce the hashtag prior to the event. If you look at the twitter party calendar, parties are listed by the hashtag (#). Users use their tweet chat client to search for the hashtag and join in the conversation. Tweetdeck and Tweetgrid make following a twitter party much easier
First Annual Online Menstrual Party on Twitter!
In celebration of one year of monthly online educational chats, Be Prepared Period and You ARE Loved are proud to announce the First Annual Online Menstrual Party will be held on Friday, July 13 from 2:00 – 3:00 p.m. ET. This public event can be accessed via Twitter using the hashtag #PeriodTalk.
With the goal of doing more AND better menstrual education, Be Prepared Period and You ARE Loved joined together to launch a monthly menstrual education event in July 2011. These monthly gatherings, known to many as #PeriodTalk, have grown from a few to fifty or more participants discussing the month’s topic. Past topics include Periodic Stories: Ours and Yours, Exploring the Many Feminine Hygiene Options, and Puberty and Periods: Guiding Tween and Teen Girls.
While every #PeriodTalk is unique, each features considerable interaction between the hosts, special guests, and participants. The partnering organizations co-host and moderate the event, develop the topic, secure special guests, and offer relevant product giveaways. Special guests serve as subject matter experts; prior special guests include educators, small business owners of companies that offer innovative and empowering menstrual products, and representatives from companies that provide eco-friendly feminine hygiene products. Participants are encouraged to join in the conversation, and welcomed to ask questions. At the conclusion of the event, winners are randomly selected and announced for that session’s giveaways.
In celebration of a successful first year, the July 13, 2012, edition of #PeriodTalk will be a menstrual party unlike any other. Additional information, including links to register for multiple product giveaways, is available on the Tweet Chat pages of the Be Prepared Period and You ARE Loved websites.
