In the early days, a major player in the rapid growth of Twitter was the Tweetup.
A Tweetup is an event that is planned and promoted via Twitter… Tweetups allow Twitter users to come together offline to deepen their online relationships.
In many cases, Tweetups allow Twitter users the opportunity to engage offline in a shared interest like sports or wine tastings creating more meaningful relationships.[box] Haven’t been to a Tweetup? Read: What is a Tweetup? [/box]
What is #SeaTweetup?
In 2011, #SeaTweetup made history as the first Tweetup at Sea. [see more event photos below]
On the first #SeaTweetup, 50 Twitter enthusiasts who love to travel and network from as far away as London, England cruised to the Bahamas on the Norwegian Sky. #SeaTweetup was loaded with private events, cocktail parties, fast-paced social media sessions & VIP treatment for the attendees.
Cruising with a group of people who share a common passion takes the travel experience to the next level. The 1st #Seatweetup attracted outgoing, fun social media marketers who understand the value and fun of spending a weekend networking on cruise to the Bahamas. I expect the same for year 2, only bigger! I cruise multiple times each year, and my favorite cruises are our social media event cruises.
Cruising with a large group of social media enthusiasts is the best way to put your network on steroids. The friendships created while sharing a once in a life time experience like traveling together are among your strongest.
As soon as we started Tweeting while boarding the Norwegian Sky on the first #SeaTweetup, people not onboard starting tweeting ‘A Tweetup on a Bahamas Cruise, I should be there’. Good news: #SeaTweetup was so much fun, that we are doing again. So this year, don’t be the one tweeting about missing the boat.[box] #SeaTweetup II will be on the Norwegian Sky 3 nt. Bahamas cruise departing Miami on October 12th, 2012.
