Inaugural Auckland Christmas Tweetup
Posted on 3-Dec-2009 10:30 | Tags Filed under: News



Tomorrow December 4th is New Zealand's inaugural Christmas Tweetup at Deschlers Bar, High St in Auckland.
The Twtvite went out a more than two months ago http://twtvite.com/anxoiq and over 100 people have confirmed their RSVP

New Zealand is as far as we know the only country in the world to hold a National Christmas Twitter Party.

This year Tweet-ups in Auckland have prospered with monthly events attended by over 50 people. We've had tweet-ups at bars, at a park with Fish n Chips and at a Beautifully restored restaurant to mention a few. This offline networking has created many wonderful relationships, helped businesses flourish and entertained many.

According to @bwagy New Zealand has over 250,000 Twitter accounts with some 50,000 active users. This is a huge increase from the 10-20k users speculated at the start of 2009.

New Zealands Social Media community is robust, prolific, passionate and very supportive. Its these qualities that lead to the call for a National Tweet-up to celebrate the year and further promote the value of our social connectedness.

With thanks to Telecom New Zealand @TelecomNZ, The Wine Vault @TheWineVault, Giapo @Giapo and Zendesk @Zendesk this Tweet-up will be something special.

These sponsors are contributing towards a bar tab, catering for around 100 people, Audio Visual and DJ equipment. But its the action on the night, the people that will attend that will make this event truly unique. Please follow the action from 5pm to 11pm NZ time (from 8pm PST 3rd December) using the hashtag #NZXmasTU
