We’re proud to announce that BlogWorld will be hosting its first ever virtual Twitter party on Wednesday to help spread the word and answer your questions about the upcoming New York event. It will also be a great way to connect with other who will be attending, so I hope to see you there! Here are the details:
What: #BWEchat Twitter Party
When: Wednesday, May 18, 2011 at 8:00 PM EST
Twitter parties (also called Twitter chats) are held online, with virtual attendees all following the same hashtag (in this case, #BWEchat). You can follow through Twitter’s main website or a desktop client like Tweetdeck, but they move really quickly, so I recommend using a site like Tweet Grid or Tweet Chat to follow along.
Who: Attendees, speakers, track leaders, BlogWorld staff, and anyone interested in learning more about the conference and meeting others who might be attending or have attended in the past. The chat host will be @blogworldexpo so make sure you follow this account! Also make sure to follow @Tracy_Iglesias and me (@allison_boyer) so we can DM you if you win one of the passes!
PRIZES: By attending #BWEchat, you’ll have a change to win an awesome prize – a free ticket to the show! During the chat, we’ll be giving away the following tickets:
- TWO 2-Day passes
- TWO 1-Day passes
- SIX Exhibits-only passes
This is important: To qualify for one of the prizes, you must tweet the following message sometime between now and the party:
Join me at #BWEchat Wed 5/18, 8 PM ET for a chance to win a free pass to BlogWorld NY! http://bit.ly/mDHNXT #BWENY
You can tweet it as many times as you want until the chat starts! You must also come to the virtual party on Wednesday and participate by tweeting at least once between 8 PM and 9 PM EST (introduce yourself, shares some tips, ask a question, etc.). We’ll announce the winners throughout the night, so the earlier you get there, the more chances you’ll have to win!
Questions: We want to answer as many questions as possible at #BWEchat. You can ask directly during the chat, or to make sure we don’t miss your tweet, feel free to leave a comment below with your question and we’ll make sure the answer is covered during the party! (Please include your Twitter handle in your comment so we can make sure to let you know the answer.)
Hope to see you there!
