  1. I did everything! But how do I follow a tag? I'm guessing I have to follow the #educationalplay tag but how? I only know how to follow other Twitter users...

  2. Thanks so much, Marina. At the time of the twitter party, you can do a search for #educationalplay and it will bring up that tag. Then for your tweets to be seen you need to include the tag in your tweets.

    But I find it far easier to follow along if I use a service like TweetChat. makes it like a chatroom and it's super easy to follow. You just visit the website and allow the app to access your twitter account when you sign in. Then you type in the hashtag you'd like to follow and it brings it up in a window. It also adds the tag to all of your tweets automatically, so you don't have to worry about forgetting it.

    If you'd like to do a trial run beforehand, I'd be more than happy to help you. Then you could see how it works with just the two of us. If you'd like, just let me know and I can email you with the address you provided.

  3. Hi Joyce! Does this mean using such a service is a requirement to enter? I really don't use any other software other than the Twitter site itself and would rather not have to. It's just that I read "follow" and thought there was a requirement, a step to be done to qualify (such as following the Twitter accounts mentioned.) But I'm guessing so long as I tag my related tweets with #educationalplay it's all good, right? :)

  4. Hi again! No, you definitely don't have to use that service to qualify. Just search for that tag on Twitter and then use the tag in all of your tweets for the party and you should be good! I'm looking forward to chatting with you!

  5. I was about to ask the same question but now I understand. I'm not too familiar with Twitter, but I'll try to keep up! I would love to follow along with this party because I love Safari LTD and their products really bring playtime alive for my kids. We use the animals and dinosaurs for all sorts of activities. Although I am curious, what exactly happens at a party like this?

  6. I'm so glad to hear your kids love Safari Ltd. as much as my son. :) And I can't wait for the party! At the party, we'll ask five conversational questions in total. We'll list the first prize offered and then ask the first. We wait a few minutes for replies and retweeting. Then we'll choose a winner for that question at random. We'll announce the winner and then ask the next question. So there will be five chances to win during the party, and then one lucky person will win a Toob of their choice just be pretweeting before the party.

    It can be fast paced, which is why I like, but it's also fun.

  7. Thank you for answering my questions! It sounds like it will be a lot of fun and I can't wait. :)

  8. Love everything from @SafariLtd can't wait to tweet with you !@djc319
