We are very happy to announce another HanoiTweetUp networking event – the very first one in 2013! The event is sponsored by Grapevine and hosted by Pots ‘n Pans, and will feature a short talk about social media / Twitter by Steve Jackson, a marketing specialist and popular blogger better known as “Our Man in Hanoi”.
Looking back, the first ever HanoiTweetUp happened in May 2011, and brought together more than 30 Twitter users as well as non-Twitter users from 10 different nationalities. We discussed a variety of topics ranging from technology, social media, blogging and photography to food, arts and music. And it was also the first time the Twitterers had the chance to meet their virtual “friends”. Different from Facebook, where you connect with people you already know in real life, Twitter is a platform where you can follow people you don’t know yet and interact with them even before you actually meet them.
HanoiGrapevine joined Twitter in April 2009 and we have built up a strong presence in the Twitter community across the country with more than 2,222 followers. And together with this HanoiTweetUp event we hope to welcome more people to sign up for Twitter to discover this very useful and powerful social tool.
You can also read an opinion piece by Grapevine’s mistress of social media on her blog: “All you bloggers should go to Twitter!”
Free entry. Complimentary snacks and ‘buy 1 get 1 free’ drinks from 5 to 7 pm.
