Are you ready to make history? No, really?
Then join the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan, the #FarrakhanTwitterArmy and thousands more for an unprecedented Tweet-up in Tuskegee, Alabama on Saturday, October 19, 2013. The event is scheduled to take place at Booker T. Washington High School starting at 4 p.m.
A Tweet-up, or Twitter party as they are sometimes referred to as, is the face-to-face meeting of Twitter users to meet and tweet for a specific purpose. Tweet-ups are great opportunities to engage people beyond the 140 character interactions. Attendees at tweet-ups generally have never met in person before, but are acquainted in some way via online conversations.
Don’t have a Twitter account yet? Don’t know how to tweet? No worries. Everyone is invited!
Minister Farrakhan will deliver a special message to attendees. For the past two years, he has answered thousands of questions via #AskFarrakhan chats on his tweet feed @LouisFarrakhan.
The purpose of this Tweet-up in Tuskegee is to live tweet during Minister Farrakhan’s weekly broadcast, “The Time and What Must Be Done.” Also to show appreciation for the #FarrakhanTwitterArmy and network with one another. There will be Twitter Army Awards presentations, live performances, giveaways, and more.
