One thing can be said for people who sue Twitter: They are more likely to be out doing things while they Tweet as opposed to Facebook users who primarily do their status updating from a home computer or at work.
In fact, Twitter has popularized events such as “Tweet-Ups” which have helped make it a marketing tool for business. Before FourSquare came along, Twitter was the way you let people know where you were and what you were doing. It still has a place in the world of communication for doing such things, and users continue to invent new ways of using it to motivate great crowds of people.
Local residents James Coleman and Steve Bomford have set people talking as they prepare to try and break a world record for the largest “tweetup”.
What started as a casual discussion over coffee has bloomed into a record attempt on a huge scale. Many local ‘tweeters’ are contributing ideas and helping to get people involved, making this a real community effort.
A “tweetup” is a social gathering of users co-ordinated through the popular social networking site Twitter. Whilst Twitter is used to discuss the planning, ideas and execution of the event, it is important to stress that anybody can take part, and each individual that attends will be counted towards the world record.
Castle Field, Southsea will play host to the record attempt at 7pm on Thursday 30th June, where more than 2,000 people are hoped to attend in order to break the current record of 1,935.
Thursday 30th June 2011 is internationally recognised as Social Media Day, and this year marks the second annual event. In 2010, 175,000 people took part in various events held across the globe, co-ordinated by Mashable, a popular website for social media and technology news.
One of the event’s organisers, James Coleman, said “Social Media Day is all about demonstrating the power and reach of services such as Twitter and Facebook, and celebrating the impact they have upon our lives. We thought it would be a great idea to try and harness this power and see if we could co-ordinate something that would put Southsea on the map. We are calling out to local residents to come and join us, and hoping that everyones dedication and creativity used to get as many people involved will spark the attention of Social Media users worldwide.”
