Lotus Knows Lotusphere’s first ever Tweetup!

I am very excited to announce a Lotusphere mini Tweet-up at the Opening Reception.  This mini networking event will allow business partners, clients, and friends that are active within the social space to connect and meet in real life.

So far, we have had a very warm response from the community to the tweet-up and I wanted to personally extend the invite to anyone else who is able to join at 6.30PM at the Sunday night Opening Reception.  If you are interested in attending or assisting with the tweet-up, please feel free to ping, email or tweet.

LotusKnows Tweetup!

My co-hosts of the event: Rani Salehi, Brian O’ Curran, Luis Benitez, Sonia Malik

Let’s meet near the playground near the Grotto Pool. We will probably move to “N” besides the Pool.

According to mashable.com, Twitter meetups, or Tweetups as they’re commonly called, are pretty much ubiquitous these days. You can’t escape them. The @ nametags. The random awkward conversations that result when you have more than 140 characters to express yourself. Tweetups take an otherwise great service like Twitter and turn it into something much bigger. Lotus knows the power of the community.

    Would have been a cool idea for Lotusphere registration to include a space for @names to print on the badges. I’ll mention this to Kristen…

    I might be able to stop by, before taking my wife to dinner (Sunday is her birthday). Hopefully well meet in person, Bilal…!
