#HanoiTweetUp is a networking event initially organized for twitter users in Hanoi to meet face-to-face with their virtual “friends” and “followers”. However, the concept soon changed into an event for everyone who are interested in social media and want to broaden their network. HanoiTweetUp was originally inspired by this same event in HCMC called #SaigonTweetUp, organized by @Vietnam720.
There have been 4 events of this type in Hanoi:
– The first one in May 2011 and the second one in July 2011 by me @MienHPham
– The third one in October 2011 by @playingwithsid and @philip_arthur (when I was in HCMC)
– And the fourth one in January 2013 by @HanoiGrapevine (my team)
Here is the list of participants, in no particular order: Read the rest of this entry »
After such a long time of waiting and being jealous with the tweeters in Saigon for their brilliant SaigonTweetUp, we, Hanoi tweeters, have eventually succeeded in having our own HanoiTweetUp, which was a great chance to network and to “put faces to names” as described by @AC220.
I would like to say thanks loads to all that showed up and to all that supported by spreading the news.
It was just great to have “face to face conversations with no 160 character limitation” (described by @hegroup)
And below is the list of people who came to the meet-up (randomly arranged):
Tue 10 May, 6.30pm
28 Tong Duy Tan, Hanoi
25 earliest comers are offered 25 free draft beer from South Gate
Non-twitter users are all welcome and hopefully you would join our diversified twitter community after the HanoiTweetUp!
