For sponsors or (hosts) it is a great way to grow their readership and get their current followers engaged in a real-time conversation.  Brands big and small have had twitter parties in the present or the past.

Why Do Twitter Parties Exist

Before Twitter existed – a real-time party couldn’t exist on a social media platform, but with the wonderful word of the new ways technology advanced – The hashtag(#) based conversations allows everyone to participate and get to know the “Brands” or website owners in a more intimate manner.

Twitter Party Hashtag Importance

Keeping up with the Conversation

The conversation during a Twitter Party can move super fast and at times can feel like it’s impossible to keep up. It can be helpful to use a hashtag stream, such as tweet chat or other ones such as twubs.com  These sites help you follow the hashtag and can allow you to “pause ” the conversation flow.

Anyone can participate in any Twitter Party… they are completely free and open to the public.
