Lately, I’ve written about Twitter a good amount here and dropped Twitter tips at The 42nd Estate’s blog and wanted to share with my Bostonian readers a few tweetup events going on this week and next week.
Tweetups are basically events that are organized and attended by Twitter users [Twitter + Meetup = Tweetup]. As you might suspect, there’s a healthy amount of Bostonians on the micro-blogging platform so Boston tweetups are usually well attended and are a great way to meet awesome people in your industry.
@Sarah Merion organized a rooftop tweetup for tomorrow, June 4th at the Rattlesnake Bar and Grill (hashtag is #roofup). The roofup runs from 6PM to 10PM but there will be a lot of people attending this one so try to get there early!
The roofup is also co-hosted by @BostonTweet [aka Tom O’Keefe] and @URWingman [aka Thomas Edwards].
The Rattlesnake Bar and Grill is located at:
384 Boylston Street
Here’s a few great reasons to attend:
- Good People
- Yummy drinks
- You get to hang out on a roof
- You might win a Johnny Cupcakes t-shirt
- You might win an Annie Mulz t-shirt
- You’ll get to eat some Kickass Cupcakes
- You might win a RUNmyERRAND.com giftcard
Sounds like a blast, @AdamPieniazek will be there for sure! Join me and a ton of other great Bostonians by registering for the roofup at eventbrite.
Mark J Carter, founder of Tweetnetworking, organized the Tweetnetworking event, a tweetup for Boston social media users and those interested in learning about social media. The event is being held June 9th at the Red Sky Restaurant & Lounge from 6:30 PM to 8:30 PM.
The Red Sky is located at:
16-18 North Street
(Near Faneuil Hall Marketplace)
Boston, MA 02109
Networking for a Cause
Mr. Carter also organized Networking for a Cause Boston, an event where non-profits meet with professionals who are willing to help non-profits out for free. It’s a great event that connects skilled indiviuduals with non-profits who need help in web design, social media, marketing, computer programming, and other skilled professions. The event is part of the Networking for a Cause organization.
NFAC Boston is also being held at the Red Sky Restaurant & Lounge on June 11th from 6:30 PM to 8:30 PM.
The 42nd Estate will be giving away a four hour social media consulting package at the event to one lucky non-profit. The package will include a review of the organization’s current web-site and social media campaigns and include advice on how to improve their outreach efforts and streamline their marketing tasks. If you’re not a non-profit, check out our unrelated concert where we’re giving away three free hours of blog/social media consulting.
The tweetup event will also feature a social media audit giveaway from John Haydon. 4 copies of the book “Saving The World At Work” by Tim Sanders will also be given away at the event.
I’ll be attending all three events and hope to see you there! If you know of any other Boston tweetups happening in the next two weeks, let us know via the comments below.

Twitter is a popular site, but people seem to be neglecting it for real world networking – there’s still nothing better than doing things in person!
I shall be there as well :). Looking forward to #rooftop madness.
Looks like some awesome events. I’m hoping to attend a tweetup myself tonight here in Austin. Hope to learn a few things 🙂
