Don't Miss It! The 1st Food Allergy Twitter Party, May 15, 2009

You probably already have heard about it here, over at www.bestallergysites.com, on another blog or maybe on Twitter. Friday, May 15, we'll be having the first ever Food Allergy Twitter Party complete with panelists, fun food allergy bloggers, and great prizes from food allergy conscious entrepreneurs and FAAN! The Food Allergy Twitter Party is basically an online "meetup" where we can share our thoughts, tips, and questions on food allergies in tweets (of 140 characters or less). We have planned two party times: 12 noon and 10:30 PM eastern time and each party will last about 1 hour.

So please join us. If you don't have a Twitter account, get one! They are free and easy to use. In order to see other FA Twitter partygoers' tweets, you will need to use the hashtag #foodallergy, and you will need to use #foodallergy for others to see your tweets at the party as well. We would LOVE food allergies to be the top trending topic on Twitter during the party times (12 noon and 10:30 PM eastern time), so be sure to tell everyone you know. Who knows, you might even win a prize!

Who are the panelists? Let's see...I am copying this from Ruth over at www.bestallergysites.com since she's done such an awesome job keeping track of everything! Thanks, Ruth!
