How to Set Up a Twitter Party
First things first, both Stacie and I use Tweetdeck for participating in Twitter parties. It's free, and besides the odd glitch, it's great.

The columns you need for Twitter parties:
There are three columns you need to set up on your Tweet Deck: notifications, the hashtag, and the party host asking the questions.
You'll want the notifications set up so when someone tries to converse with you, you're able to easily track it and respond. This way there are no missed messages. On fast and high-flying Twitter parties, you won't be able to keep up with everyone's comments and RT's (let alone respond) but this helps big time.
The second column is for the hashtag that is used for the party. Here you'll be able to see what is being said and the photos being shared through the party.
3. Party Host:
The third column is another notifications, but this time it's to get every notification from the Twitter party host. Set this up using the host who is asking the questions, and this way you never miss the questions for you to answer to win.
