Details of the @statesman Tweetup

I’ve had several people ask me, “What is a Tweetup?” and it’s hard to answer in <140 characters, so I figured I’d try here instead. Plus, this gives me a chance to offer up more detail.

When: 6 p.m. Dec. 11 (a Thursday). There’s no set time for when it will end.

Where: Opal Divine’s south location at Penn Field

Why?: It’s just meant to be a social event. A chance to meet people in person in our community who you may only know through Twitter. Some Statesman staff members will be there, including @taratrower, @broylesa, @omarg and me the @statesman guy (also known as @robquig) – and maybe some others. We’ll hang out on Opal’s cool deck, drink a few drinks and maybe eat some cheese fries. There’s no agenda, panels, speakers, etc. Just a get-together. We might provide some name tags so everyone can identify their Twitter user name.

Cost: It’s free, unless you want to drink or eat. The Statesman is providing some cool free T-shirts for some of the lucky attendees, but that’s it.

Who is invited: Anyone who wants to come. Invite your friends/neighbors, significant others. There’s no need to RSVP. We have no idea how many people will show.

If you have more questions, @reply me or DM me on the Statesman account.

Cheers, Robert
