There's A Party & You're Invited!

On Wednesday March 21st,  Seth Apter will be celebrating the release of his book, The Pulse of Mixed Media by holding a Twitter Launch Party and YOU (yes YOU!) are invited. The Launch Party will run from from 9-10pm EST, (6-7pm PST) and you will be able to talk in real time to many of the contributing artists from the book. (Including me!)

Everybody is welcome, but you need to have  to join in and for this party, all tweets will need to include the hashtag #PulseBook.

Like any party, you will need directions to get there.
Seth has explained the two routes that you can take:

If you already use (or are willing to join) a Twitter client such as TweetDeck or HootSuite, you can sign up to follow the hashtag #PulseBook. In doing so, all the tweets that include #PulseBook will automatically show up on your account. will all the other tweets you normally get. Remember, at the party your tweets must include #PulseBook to be seen.

2. If you use TweetChat, you can spend the hour in a TweetChat room where you will only be able to see the tweets from people at the party and no other tweets from those people you follow. Signing up is quick and easy and I highly recommend this approach, even if you already use TweetDeck or HootSuite.

You can try it out now. It's simple. Sign up with TweetChat in advance here by linking your Twitter account. When the party starts, sign into your TweetChat account and enter hashtag #PulseBook. This will automatically take you to a "private room" where all the other Launch partygoers will be. Chat in real time for the hour and when the party is over, just close the page.

Personally I am going the TweetChat route-it will be less distracting because I will only be viewing tweets for that hour that pertain to the #PulseBook launch party. I am glad Seth has given us such great instructions-that will save my sanity because there's nothing for me to figure out. I've already test driven TweetChat and it's super simple. Hooray!

So...I hope that you will join us on Wednesday night. Bring a friend-the more, the merrier! If you have any questions, you can email Seth.
See you there!
