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.

It is my pleasure, Mike, and I look forward to the next LV TweetUp. I’ve met so many great people lately through twitter and the TweetUps. Thanks for all your hard work.


I attended the LVTweetup also and had a great time and put faces to the tweetup names that I communicate with on a daily Twittering.. I also look forward to future tweetups and encourage all to attend.


It was a really great time – I think one of the best. A great mix of people. It is always fun to put faces with words. Thanks to Michael for putting these together. Oh and sorry for the blank one I hit the wrong key.


Yet another blast, Mike! Every Tweetup is better than the last, bringing more folks together to chat, babble and connect in the “real world.” Excellent vibe, nice venue and very cool tweeps!

Great time!
