    Hi Amelia,
    I was completely overwhelmed the first time I attended a Pawty. One of the nice folks attending saw my tweet to that effect and suggested using TweetGrid. After setting up a 1×1 grid, you can search for the hashtag #BlogPawty, which slows things down (a little bit) by showing you only the conversations using that hashtag.
    Of course, nowadays you can do much the same right in Twitter by doing a search for #BlogPawty, saving the search, and using the Searches tab in your Twitter account. And I now pretty much do all my Twitter stuff in HootSuite, creating a separate stream tab for the search: “#BlogPawty”
    But the one big advantage TweetGrid still has is the ability to enter the hashtag in a box and have it automatically entered in each of your tweets, so you can keep up, without losing the thread of your own conversations!
    Please come and see, even if it just looks crazy at first. I think you’ll figure it out sooner than you expect!
    Tom
