What is HashParty?
is a twitter hashtag explorer that reveals the "who" behind the "what". Why? How many times have you checked out a hashtag trend and wondered who are these people?.With HashParty you can now see the "who" behind trending conferences, brands, and more. It's all about tapping into the "who" behind hashtags, the people that tweet them, explore the social graph of the bigger conversation.
Hashtags are like man made
tags, specific to bigger ideals, richer conversations, spanning whole
events like conferences, memes and just about anything.
We're used to searching and exploring the tweets but we've never really had a good look at the people behind the tweets- until now. People are the source-for inspiration today and tomorrow. Dive into the social graph and tap that inspiration.

also search on people themselves by using their twitter names with
their @ symbol- "@floozyspeak", this will bring up that persons tweets

what they said
Nuff said, these are the tweets.
who said it
These are the profiles behind the "who" of tweets. HashParty uses the Ident Engine
to crank out its social graph profiles. It begins by drilling into the twitter name ids behind the tweets.
From there it scours the web
and attempts to put together the complete profile which it doesn't always get right, but it can get pretty close.
this helpful or useful? Tweets alone cannot satisfy your search
thirst- get into that person, jump into their blog, check out their
friendfeed, youtube and more. You can optionally sort "who" by the most
social network activity, most twitter followers or date.

links? You're link hungry for that conference in question, you're
curious about the coverage, just get to the action. Sweet links yanks
