An idea two Sudbury residents had more than a year ago has flourished as they plan to hold their 17th Sudbury Social Tweetup tomorrow at 6:30 p.m. at Bistro 20.
The Sudbury Social Tweetup is an informal 2-hour gathering hosted by Bob Cargill and Phil Hollows and is open to anyone who wants to learn about the ins and outs of social media.
"The purpose of this networking event is to bring together business people, marketers and professionals who live or work in Sudbury and the surrounding communities who want to meet others from the area and learn more about such social media channels as Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, YouTube and blogs," they say in their open online invitation.
Cargill and Hollows host the Sudbury Social Tweetup on the last Thursday of each month. At each Tweetup, there is an informal discussion about a different social media-related topic.
Tomorrow, Hollows will give a short presentation on using Twitter for customer service. He will also lead a group discussion on how small, grassroots advocacy groups can use social media to get the word out about their respective causes.
And if you decide to write about the event online, the hosts ask you to use the hashtag, #SudburySocial.
