(Try planning this kind of fun. Go ahead, good luck)
Tweetups, like Meetups and Networking Events, are always nice to plan. It’s also helpful to be able to pick your venue, plan a menu, craft a guest list, and develop a framework for how the evening should flow in advance. It’s especially helpful to the venue owner in case the numbers attending your event are going to need their own space.
But Tweetups, in their essence, are spontaneous and can’t always be planned. Much like any given day, you never know what’s going to happen…
A few tweets later and a crew of folks were meeting at a local establishment. Dubbed an “afterweetup” after respect for the local company’s event, the new movement later became an “afteraftertweetup,” when the scene moved to a local Mexican diner for a “nightcap.”
You spread the word on an unplanned tweetup much like you do with a planned tweetup. You just do it much more hastily.
Then, most importantly, go have some fun. Before too long, word gets out about the events and people start to get used to the “planned spontaneity.”
There are a few hashtags those in The Region use to announce Tweetups
Keep monitoring tweets with these words. You never know when they’re announcing a tweetup.
