If you’re new to Twitter or still learning the ropes, we’ve laid out a step-by-step guide to participating in a Twitter Chat below.
So, what exactly is a Twitter Chat?
A Twitter chat is a public discussion—with “tweeters” from all over the world—based on a common topic of interest.
Why a Twitter Chat?
Twitter has become the go-to forum for moms worldwide to discuss every topic imaginable. Twitter is a big place, though, and our #zulilyNurseryStyle chat will be a great way to share ideas about style on a smaller scale.
How can I follow the discussion?
At first glance, Twitter can seem like a chaotic place for a discussion. Fortunately, some simple tools have been created to help organize the many tweets generated every day.
While the @zulily Twitter Chat promises to be fast paced, the Twitter “#hashtag” feature allows followers to more easily keep up with and participate in the discussion.
Each follower participating in the Chat will include a unique hashtag (#) in each tweet. For our Chat, we will be using #zulilyNurseryStyle. This will help readers following the Twitter Chat to separate ours from other discussions taking place on Twitter.
To more easily follow and participate in the discussion, we recommend using a Twitter monitoring app. We’ve added a few of our favorites below. They’re free to use and will allow you to view any tweet that includes the right # (hashtag).
New to Twitter? Follow these simple steps to sign up and join the discussion:
- Visit twitter.com to sign up for an account and pick a unique Twitter “handle” (Handle = what comes after the @ symbol)
- Follow @zulily @JennyMcCarthy and @HollywoodHotMoms
- Visit one of our recommended Twitter monitoring tools. We’ll use tweetchat.com as an example.
- Once you’ve arrived at TweetChat click ‘Sign In’ and allow Twitter to authorize the TweetChat app.
- In the field that reads “Enter hashtag to follow,” input zulilyNurseryStyle
(all one word)
- Join the chat! Tweet us a question or comment, or simply introduce yourself! We’ll make sure to say hello! Be sure to include the @ symbol to direct your tweet at the right user. Here’s an example:
“@zulily excited to be here! What color would be most soothing for a baby boy’s room? #zulilyNurseryStyle”
