Until you’ve actually attended one, you may wonder…

What is a Tweetup and why are they so popular?

What is a Tweetup?” Explained by Emma Kahn

How do you find a Tweetup?

You may be looking for a Tweetup near your home town or city, or check one out while on vacation (I’ve done both and HIGHLY recommend Tweetups as a great way to meet new people and connect with Twitter friends!)

1. Use Twitter search to find a tweetup using the city name and the word Tweetup (all one word), for example: #AlbanyTweetup #NYCTweetup #NYTweetup , etc.

2. Search for Tweetups by city, using a third party website like, or .

3. Use Tweetups to expand your social network…which will naturally expand your business network.

So, find a Tweetup and get out there, you never know who you’re going to meet!

In social situations birds of a feather flock together. In task situations opposites attract. – Tony Alessandra
