A tweetup is where people come together, bring along their wi-fi enabled laptop and/or mobile phone and meet other people. People also twitter during the course of the night, so even if you can’t make it you can see what’s happening and contribute, by following #prestontweetup.

Preston Tweetup I

The first Preston Tweetup was held on Tuesday 17th March 2009 at the New Continental in their ‘Snug’ area. The event is held in association with Stage 9 Marketing the official sponsors & Preston Tweetup logo is by Kerry Sholicar. The topic discussed was ‘How can the web can be used in Preston Guild 2012?’ As the last Guild was held in 1992 and back then broadband and widespread laptop ownership was a twinkle in a very rich man’s eye.

Preston Tweetup II

The second Preston Tweetup was held on Monday 27th July 2009 at the New Continental in Broadgate, Preston. We didn’t get a sponsor but we did get about 25 people discussing how we can support the arts in Preston. The event was part of the Preston Tringe Festival.

Preston Tweetup III

The third Preston Tweetup will be held on Tuesday 12th October at the New Continental pub in the event area, and you can reserve your place by going to our event page.

We’re going to be discussing:

‘How can online communities strengthen offline communities?’

With the boom of social media and a new form of the web, people are connecting in ways they’ve previously never been able to. Those with collective interests can discuss ideas, form business partnerships and make friends without having even met. This Tweetup will focus on ways that online has helped benefit ‘real world’ relationships.
