World Dairy Expo Tweet Up

Chuck ZimmermanInternet, World Dairy Expo

Here’s a definition of a Tweet Up: “A real world meeting between two or more people who know each other through the online Twitter service.”

Pretty simple. The official World Dairy Expo Tweet Up took place yesterday afternoon. Here are some of our participants. We actually had more show up.

So why a tweet up? Because it’s a good opportunity to meet someone face to face that you may only know via 140 character messages. I don’t know how many tweet ups I’ve been to at this point but I’ve always enjoyed the opportunity to meet people who I’ve gotten to “know” electronically. The tweet up is usually organized via tweets. Makes sense and shows the communication power of the channel.
