Day 12: Put the social in social networking.
Call a tweetup using Twtvite.

Twitter is a great way to meet people online, whether through love of football, recipes or mutual business interests. But wouldn’t it be more fun to meet them offline, too?

An easy way to do it is to call a tweetup, an informal gathering of folks organized via Twitter. (Social Media Birmingham discusses the definition further.) “Tweetup! Meet us at Lou’s Pub at 6 tonight!” Simple, no?

A great tool to organize tweetups is Twtvite, which allows you to add a location and a map, start and end time and an event title. It also allows you to track retweets, guest lists and comments. And, it’s free! Check out one I helped promote from this past summer called the Bottletree Bailout.

Don’t be shy. Call a tweetup, and meet the tweeps in your community tonight!
