What is a tweetup?
A tweetup is an event organized mostly through twitter where people meetup face to face to socialize, network and discuss whatever topics are hot on twitter or the social web. We are hosting the 2nd annual #IBMImpact All Star Tweetup on Wednesday evening in the Impact Social Lounge, Room Veronese 2504. The Impact web and social media marketing team encourages everyone to drop by the tweetup to enjoy food and drinks in a chill atmosphere after a full day of awesome conference sessions.
RSVP with your Twitter handle on Plancast or via the Facebook event. Suggest tunes you want to hear by commenting on twitter, Plancast, Facebook or here on the blog. Follow new people on twitter that you want to meet face to face at the tweetup. Bring your smart phone and join into some fun activities planned for photo sharing. Check-in on Foursquare when you arrive at the Social Lounge and unlock a Special and receive the #IBMImpact All Star Tweetup button. All Guests who attend receive a geeky give-away that you can use. Thank our totally awesome sponsor @atech_speaks with a nice tweet – Ascendant rocks!
Decide if real-life people match their avatars - you'll be surprised. Enjoy some good food and drinks. Strike up a conversation with @Nancy_Pearson, @socialmediamvn, @rwang0, and many other #IBMImpact VIPs! Share your conference stories and perspectives with our 'roving reporters' as they work the room with Flip cams. Gawk at the VIPs being interviewed live from the Lounge by @turbotodd and @scottlaningham on Impact TV. Watch wacky moments as people tweet their OH:, #WINNING and other LOL inducing geek moments. (#HilarityEnsues) Challenge @IBMWatson to a game of wits. Marshall Schor will share what is behind the that charismatic avatar with DeepQA brains. Share photos and video from your smart phone to prove to the kids back home that you met a VIP through twitter. Discuss hot #WebSphere #Unconference topics to decide who will get your votes when sessions are selected Thursday morning. Did you check-in at 3 or more event locations around the conference? If so, claim the exclusive Impact "Mover 'n Shaker" button and let your geek flag fly. Meet the smiling faces behind the @IBMImpact. Pose those burning twitter questions you are keeping to yourself but have been too embarrassed to ask in a tweet chat. Just relax and have fun with old and new tweeps.
See you there!
