LV TweetUp Turns One!

By Jaime Karpovich

It wasn’t the sound of chirping birds that echoed from the Allentown Brew Works Tuesday night April 13. Instead, it was a large group of Tweeters.

Guests stepped out from behind laptops and iPhones to mingle in person for the One Year Anniversary of the LV Tweet-Up. Event organizer Michael Andreano welcomed many first-timers.

Upon entering, guests were asked to sign in and attach a name tag with two names: their first name, and their Twitter ID. This made it easy to recognize who was who — local businesses owners talked shop while local vegans rejoiced in finding more vegans. A beautiful cake was provided by Gail Lehman of Back Door Bakeshop of Bethlehem. Cupcakes from Vegan Treats Bakery were raffled off, and everyone left with a glass provided by the Brew Works etched with the Twitter IDs of sponsors. ¬†Although social networking has become a part of everyone’s daily life, in the end it just can’t replace the recreational fun that happens when people spend time together.
