This will be a charity tweetup.

What is a Charity Tweetup?

‘Tis the season, of course, so here’s what we are planning: Our Sundance Tweetup will be a Charity Tweetup, meaning that whilst we are socializing amongst ourselves we are also going to be conducting a fund-raiser to donate to a local Utah charity. We’ll all feel good, for sooo many reasons. Here’s how it works:

  1. Send your charity nominations to @startupprincess;
  2. Bring $5 or more to the #suntweet tweetup;
  3. During the tweetup, we will conduct a poll via;
  4. At 8:50 p.m. we will announce the winning charity, and the amount collected.

Spread the word, and use hashtag #suntweet to find us on Twitter.

Our evening will also feature a 25-minute panel discussion featuring five prominent panelists who will share how they have built value for their social audience, and how that has helped them grow their following to monumental levels.


  1. Jyl Johnson Pattee of Mom it Forward
  2. Ghennipher of S|M Spin
  3. Krista Parry, of Park City Mountain Resort
  4. Jesse Stay of Stay-n-Alive

    Really looking forward to this event! If you can make it down to Salt Lake City on 1/20, we’re planning a tweetup with Sundance and hopefully a couple of filmmakers at the Beehive Tea Room (12 WEST 300 SOUTH SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH). It would really say a lot for Twitter in Utah to have both of these Sundance-related events strongly supported.

    See you there!

    Sounds like a fun week, Ghennipher! I am planning to attend both and look forward to seeing you!

    If anyone is interested in tweeting up earlier in the day on the slopes, please get in touch with me @eric_hoffman I’d be happy to make some turns with you and show you around the mountain!
