Tweetups have been one of the true successes of Twitter. Meeting new sports fans through social media is great, but nothing compares to the networking and bonding that occurs in face to face events. Embracing both social media and face to face relationships, the San Francisco Giants hosted the first tweetup for Major League Baseball earlier this season.
This wednesday, they are hosting another tweetup, called “Tweetup Happy Hour”. I am going to be there as well and would love to meet with you as well!
Via the Giants Official Website:
The special event ticket package includes a ticket to the game in one of the official Tweetup sections of the ballpark (most of which are in section 140… 140 characters… we know, we’re clever), plus a pre-game Tweetup in Scoreboard Plaza from 5:15pm-7pm, one complimentary drink at the pre-game party, and various Twitter promotions throughout the game. The pregame Tweetup will feature a DJ, cash bar, some Giants giveaways, and as a bonus, the first 250 fans to arrive to the party will receive the t-shirt from our first Tweetup. Make sure to follow @SFGiants on Twitter, and use the #SFGTweetup hastag during the event!
On top of that, you’ll get to meet members of the Giants Front Office Staff (including their social media team), local media, technology rockstars and the @SFGiants Community.
Tickets are $19.00 and can be purchased at SFGiants.com/SpecialEvents
See you tomorrow!
