#Tweetups

Five years ago a group of “kids” {at heart} got together to meet Twitter friends in real life. The concept took off and before we knew it, we were having meet ups in Napa and Sonoma once per month. It was exciting meeting new people, and the groups continued to get larger and larger making networking fun and beneficial for many.

Among the group were Shana and I. We met at a wine event over five years ago. After our first meeting setup by an equally loved JMB, we realized that we probably should have met many times before that and with both of us being as social as we are, we were surprised we didn’t.

With the meet ups taking a break and it coming on a two year pause, Shana and I {good friends now} were reminiscing over a beer when we thought: let’s bring it back! We both know what it takes to throw a party and we both love parties…so why not?! We had our first Tweetup last week at my work, Trione Winery. My husband cooked up some solid food {Peloton Catering} and a bunch of old friends got together and had a blast! It was wonderful and nostalgic. We decided that we needed to keep this thing going and do some sort of “Traveling Tweetup” where we would go to businesses and promote them and have fun. What a concept?! Seems like a no brainer for sure.

If there is one thing that I have learned about the world of social media is we all just love hanging out with each other and having a good time. There are so many smart people who have a lot to offer and these events is where you’ll meet those people. I have met my marketing partners, web partners, and photographers at these events, all who I have a solid relationship with still.

One of my favorite things about these tweetups is the photos and the hashtags. They are all cool and anything goes. Photos have to be pretty and hashtags should be relevant and are always encouraged to be funny.
