People on Twitter realized that there’s more to life than writing about the things they do, eat or wear in 140 characters or less. This reason gave birth to a meetup of Twitter friends called (you guessed it right!), tweetup.
Tweetups are great venues to build networks and connect with people. There are no strict rules on when and where these meeting takes place. However, there are a few factors to consider when organizing a tweetup in your area or community:
Create a Landing Page
Obviously, invites for a tweetup happen on Twitter but organizers should still direct participants to a landing page (it can be a blog, a website or a Facebook page) which will contain the details of the event. A sign up form can also be uploaded on this page.
Create a Hashtag
A hashtag can be an excellent tool in monitoring the tweets related to the tweetup. Formulate a hashtag that is unique and interesting. Remind attendees to use the hashtag before, during and after the tweetup especially when posting their tweets and Twitpics.
Maximize the official Twitter page of your tweetup to find a good location, sound system and catering for the event. This can also be an outlet where participants can suggest activities that will happen the tweetup.
Make this impromptu gathering a way to share to the world the things you are passionate about, but this time, you won’t need to click the ‘Send’ button to let them know.
