Simply, a tweetup is an event where people who Twitter come together to meet in person… to twitter (okay, so I added that last part but its true! Bring your iPhone and TweetDeck!). Take a few hours off and come connect with online friends; put a face to the name (er… Twitter profile) over more than 140 characters.
Social Marketing Maven Michael Brito (I really wanted to call him Multi-Media Marketing Maven Michael – alliteration is fun!) has pulled together a great venue with a great cause to host the Bay area event.
July 23rd, from 5:30 to 8:00 PM, at Santana Row’s Rosie McCannâ€™s Irish Pub in San Jose. There will be an extended drink special for all and free wireless to keep those thumbs tweeting. The real draw? (besides the Black and Tan) I, for one, really want one of those uber-small laptops (a Netbook) but refuse to pay for one any time soon (I waited for years to commit to the iPhone which, I’ve since discovered, is the greatest invention modern history – here I go making the same mistake?). They’ll be raffling off an HP Mini Netbook at the event and are asking for only a donation of $5 or $10 to the Anissa Lopez Foundation, which supports the George Mark Children’s House, an organization for families coping with seriously ill children.
When referencing the tweetup in twitter, or if you upload any pics or video from the event, we’ll be using #svtweetup so others can see what we are up to (what’s that?).
Hope to see you there! But first, RSVP Here
