On April 21st, 2011, Boston University PRSSA is hosting the 2nd annual #BostonCOM Tweet-Up! But, what exactly is a Tweet-Up?
We all constantly tweet, tag, and follow one another, but now is the opportunity to meet up in person and discuss what we’ve been typing about.
A Tweet-Up is a networking event that connects our virtual world in the real world. Usually we connect with friends online after having met them in person, but in this case we are doing the opposite. We all have online connections that we would like to put a face to and share in a conversation that consists of more than 140 characters.
It’s about community. Any person with a Twitter account can organize or participate in one. A Tweet-Up gives you the opportunity to put your networking skills into action and make closer connections with people who share similar interests or ideas. By gathering all of these people together in person, relationships are solidified and connections are made.
As a reminder, our event is at Jillian’s of Boston, 145 Ipswich St., from 6-10pm. Appetizers will be served. Take this opportunity to socialize and make connections. Remember that it’s not always what you know, but who you know.
You can register on Eventbrite. Contact the event organizer, Maurice Rahmey (firstname.lastname@example.org), with any questions.
Most of all, don’t forget to join the conversation on Twitter by using the #BostonCOM2 hashtag!
