Tweetup Meetup

Friday nights are usually busy for everyone, but you seriously must find the time to stop by tonight's MSPTweetup. That is, if you ever wondered what that person with a weird user name with whom you've been exchanging tweets for weeks really looks like. Tweetups can be awkward and awesome at the same time, but they sure are fun. If you get lucky, you might just run into a celebrity at one of those like we did at the last local tweetup (held at Bulldog NE in November).

Out of nowhere and much to everyone's surprise, Mark Cuban (owner of the Dallas Mavericks and an avid Twitterer himself) showed up at the event! Cuban was in town for a business meeting and Kareem Ahmed who organized the tweetup, cleverly decided to ask him to come over if he had nothing better to do. He not only showed up, but was incredibly gracious; he chatted and took photos with almost everybody in the room. We contacted Kareem this morning to ask him if he had another surprise up his sleeve for tonight's tweetup and his response was that no celebrities will be making an appearance. Or maybe they will?

Tonight's tweetup is happening at Grumpy's downtown, 7-10 p.m. and it is a Haiti benefit as well, so bring some change. And don't forget to tag your Tweets with a #msptweetup hash tag. See you there!
