Well, I was invited to participate in a twitter party last night. It was being hosted by prissygreen. Karissa of prissygreen blog had contacted me and another organic beauty business owner. The topic of the party was Sibu beauty. Beauty from the inside out. I was so excited. I read up on all of Sibu's products, learned about tweet chat and tweet grid and was ready to go.
Even though I'm on vacation right now in CA, and getting ready to attend my stepdaughter's wedding I put time aside to contribute to this twitter party.
I got all ready with my laptop, tea, and notes and was ready to go! I logged into the tweet chat room 10 minutes prior to the party starting and sat in anticipation of chatting with women about natural beauty. Well, the party started and as I began to tweet I realized my tweets were not showing up in the chat room. Karrissa and the other panelist tweets were not showing up either. I began to investigate why, and 4o minutes into the party I figured it out. You have to make sure that in your profile on twitter you do not have your tweets protected. I sent a direct message to prissygreen letting her know, but it was too late. She was tweeting out questions for prizes and was keeping the party rolling.
I tweeted several times as I had so much I wanted to share about the subject. It was very amusing as I only had about 20 minutes to share. I'm sure persons in the chat room might have thought I was a bit looney as the party was really winding down and I was tweeting away about beauty from the inside out.
Not all was lost though, I gained 90 followers on twitter, I learned that I can perform and think constructively under pressure. As I figured out on my own how to fix the problem and did not panic. I gave myself a pat on the back when it was all over and had a whole bar of organic chocolate as my tweet. (little twitter humor)
Im going to plan a twitter party in the near future for all my Joyful Girls. I think it will be fun to chat with everyone, give away organic product and other fun stuff.
