As everyone does, my first response when I heard the term ‘tweetup’ was to pretend I already knew what it meant. Now that I have actually been to a few I can honestly say it is an amazing extension of our virtual network, which in itself is an amazing thing.
A tweetup is an event where people who Twitter come together to meet in person. Normally we connect with our friends online after we have met them. At a tweetup you meet the people you might only otherwise know virtually. Like finally putting a name to a face, a tweetup is a great opportunity to really connect with the people in your network and share just a little more than 140 characters at a time.
I stopped by the Salt Lake Brewing Company tonight to tweetup with Salt Lake City tweeters. Another great meeting in the bag, and a few more friends to follow. Nice to meet you all, here’s the photo, and what a tweetup looks like in real life…
