I have been using TweetGrid for over a year now (I’ve officially been sweeping for a whole year!) and have found its the best way to keep up during a Twitter party. Ya’ll know how much I love to party!
How many of you have attended a Twitter party by watching your feed only to give up because you couldn’t keep up? I did when I first started. Then I researched parties and came across the wonderful www.tweetgrid.com and started trying out the different sites that ran feeds on Twitter for parties; (this one being the best by far.)
By being able to enter the hash tag and then only view tweets going to the one hash tag it keeps you in the loop of the conversation during the chat. Another genius appeal to it is the ability to have multiple feeds going in each column. If you are attending a party with multiple hosts and panelists you could possibly miss a question if you don’t have them all listed, hence missing out on a great prize. We don’t want to do that!
Quick Tip:Note: Some chats require you answer all of the questions posted to be eligible for all or specifically the grand prize. Who wants to miss out on prizes?! I sure don’t! Always pay close attention to the RSVP page so that u include all important people during chat.
Below you can see a screen shot of the grid. Depending on how many hostesses or panelist are involved you have a lot of choices as to how you want to look at the grid. I like it simple and usually go with 1×3, 1×4 or at the most 1×5. In some cases the parties will tweet out a custom tweetgrid-check it out and if it’s too busy for you go with what you know and feel most comfortable with.
