Have you hosted a tweet-up?

Hey everyone! I’m brainstorming ideas for local tweet up and thought I’d ask my fellow govies if you had done one before and get any feedback you may have. I’m hoping to work with our local Chamber of Commerce for a neutral (and free) location. I’m without a fancy food spread or cool NASA shuttles to look at so i’m trying to determine what would draw folks in.

I’d love to hear from others who have held tweet-ups and find out what worked and what didn’t.

Hi Beth,

A few thoughts on holding an effective tweet-up:

-Find influential people and seek them out to attend in advance so they can help you get the word out

-Using meetup find local groups who are tied to your topic and invite them

-Use local organizations to spread the word like SMC-DC (Social Media Club – DC)

-When tweeting out the event include other hashtags to amplify your message to other streams

Hope that helps! Feel free to reach out for more helpful hints that we have used.
