Since the first Emma Twitter party was such a success, PBS.org is presenting another for Part Two! There will be an “east coast” party beginning this Sunday, January 31, at 9pm ET and a “west coast” party to follow at 9pm PT at Twitter hashtag #emma_pbs.
You can use the official PBS Emma TwitGrid (it’s a new one!) to help you navigate all posts to the #emma_pbs hashtag. Check the PBS.org Emma Twitter page for details and updates. In the works: another quiz with Laurel Ann and me, more prizes, and special discounts for party participants at ShopPBS!
