How to RSVP for a Twitter Party

Saturday, January 19, 2013


Twitter parties can be tonnes of fun, especially if there are prizes to be won. For those new to Twitter, the idea of a Twitter party may seem entirely foreign but, having participated in and having moderated several Twitter parties and chats over the past few years, I am always open to questions and happy to help Twitter newbies manoeuvre their way through the process. Today, let's begin with a little tutorial on how to RSVP for a Twitter party.

First, you will need to locate the appropriate link that will take you to a link entry form of sorts. I like to use LinkyTools. This is what it would look like.


Step 1: Click on "Click here to enter" to access the linky entry form.

Once you have reached the Linky Entry Form, you may find it a tad confusing. The first field asks for 'Link Title or Blog Title." In the case of a Twitter party, this is where you would type in your Twitter handle (also known as your Twitter username) preceded by the @ symbol. In the second field, you would type in your Twitter URL, or copy and paste the address that appears when you are viewing your Twitter page.



Step 2: Type in your Twitter handle and Twitter URL in the first two fields.

The example below shows how I would RSVP to a Twitter party using my Twitter handle and URL. You will often have the option of including your email address and name, or sometimes these fields will be mandatory. I suggest including them anyway in the case that you win a prize and for some reason you cannot be reached via Twitter. Finally, click on the "Enter your link..." button to submit your RSVP.


Step 3: Click on "Enter your link..." to submit your entry.

And voila! You have now RSVP'd and can move on to the next step: How to Use TweetDeck.com for Twitter Parties.

  3. Is it necessary to RSVP to join the chat? Can't i search by the #hashtag to follow along?

    1. Hi Loretta! It isn't technically necessary to RSVP to join the chat and yes, you can follow using the hashtag. But if you want to be eligible to win prizes, the names are drawn from the RSVP list. Hope that answers your questions!
