Twitter Party Instructions below:

What is a Twitter Party? A gathering of individuals on Twitter who follow a single conversation or subject using what are called hashtags.

What is a hashtag? A hashtag is the “#” sign. Perhaps because it looks like a hashbrown? No one can be sure. The hashtag for the BornFree Twitter Parties is #BornFree. Whenever you tweet during the BornFree Twitter Parties to answer a contest question, ask a question, or make a comment, put #BornFree at the beginning or end of your tweet.

Why do we use hashtags? If you login to Twitter and press the “Home” button, you will notice a search box in the right sidebar. If you enter #BornFree in the box and press enter you will see all of the people participating in the BornFree Twitter parties and will be able to converse with them!

How do I enter contests? Login to Twitter and make sure you are following BornFree at http://www.twitter.com/newbornfree. Then watch both the BornFree tweets and when we post a contest, tweet back to us by pressing “reply” or tweeting to @newbornfree.

Example Tweet: “@newbornfree I love your products!”

Putting the “@” sign in front of a Twitter user’s name sends the tweet to them.

What is a Retweet? Also abbreviated like this: RT, a Retweet is a copy of a tweet.

Tweet: @newbornfree I love your products!

tweet.

Retweet: RT @newbornfree I love your products!

Twitter lets you automatically Retweet posts. Be careful though, you only have 140 characters to use! Make it short and sweet.

See you tonight!
