A couple of weeks ago, I had the opportunity to attend my first tweet up ever, a #SAchat SxSW tweet up in Austin held at one of Rudy’s BBQ’s locations. While I didn’t get the opportunity to have lengthy conversations with everyone there, I did have a lot of fun and enjoyed meeting people that I have connected with via Twitter.
While at the tweet up, Ed Cabellon asked me to say a couple of words about my experience. Being the introvert that I am, I reflected on that question more when I went back home and I came up with some variables as to why I thought it was a successful tweet up:
Good People + Good Food + Good Conversations + Good atmosphere = A Good Tweet Up
So there you have it. It’s really simple isn’t it? So, if you are ever try to plan a tweet up, I think those are the variables that you need to consider. The good people variable is easy. Making sure you’re at a place that can provide the other variables is easier said than done. What are some other variables to consider?
