On Monday, I put up a post here on the blog: Connecting with others – A HUGE value of #WPC10 talking about the value of the connections made here at Worldwide Partner Conference each and every year. Yesterday, through the use of social media and the initiative of some #WPC10 attendees, another opportunity to make connections with some of the wonderful #WPC10 attendees (that you can participate in) came to fruition.
UPDATE: The recording of the #WPC10 Tweetup is now posted and available to view on-demand: CLICK TO VIEW
If you’ve been following #WPC10 at all this week, you’ve probably seen the excitement pouring out of the keynotes and other sessions here through all sorts of social media engines, including streams of tweets covering the keynote sessions. During yesterday’s keynote, the following tweet came through on the #WPC10 stream:
“@simchabe – Oh, it’s close for top #wpc10 tweeter @EricLigman 239.and @WPC10US 229 followed by @nuxnix @rwang0 @meetdux @risepartners @stevenoverly…”
From there, an idea came to be. Let’s pull the top 10 #WPC10 tweeters (which I’m honored to be a part of) together for a TweetUp here at #WPC10 and then it grew into a LiveMeeting as well for those who aren’t here. Thanks to @meetdux for offering to bring his equipment in to help pull this together and the initiative to post up details on the event. I think this will be a fantastic get together and opportunity for any #WPC10 attendees who want to meet us there to get together and share some information while putting together faces with names from the online world.
So come join the Top 10 #WPC10 tweeters (@risepartners @meetdux @nuxnix @ericligman @rwang0 @stevenoverly @wpc10us @ericligman @simchabe @tiffanywi) and anyone else who wants to join us for this TweetUp opportunity taking place in the US Lounge in the Community Hall on Thursday morning. If you’re not attending WPC, we will be broadcasting live and you can join us via LiveMeeting for FREE. Just click the join us via LiveMeeting URL at 7.45am (EST) on July 15:
I look forward to seeing all of you at this in the morning and getting to meet these top #wpc10 tweeters in person as well!
Thank you and have a wonderful day,
