What are Twitter Parties?

While they are very similar and similar functionality, there are differences between the Twitter Party and Twitter Chat. Twitter Chat is what we had tonight, with a conversation with Kelly and a Twitter Party is the party version, with giveaways and a lot of activity! See the links, above, for a breakdown of the differences.

Final Thoughts and Action Steps

Thank you all, for joining this chat! And, thank you, Kelli, for being our guest of honor, in chatting about Twitter Parties. (Everyone, be sure to click on her tweets and twitter handle to start engaging with her!) Thanks, Gail, for the kind words :) Also, some sage advice from Kath Penney.

Over time some Storify code is removed from Storify and it makes for an unattractive Storify archive. That is the case with this Storify, but we have included it for the content that was shared during this chat.
