Techopedia Explains Tweetup

Tweetups are the opposite of how usual social media friendships start, where people meet in person, chat and become friends, and then connect over social media. On Twitter, users meet strangers online and, through a tweetup, may become friends in person.

The word tweetup is an amalgamation of the words “tweet” and “meetup” and is exclusively used in relation to the social networking site Twitter. Tweetups have become an integral part of social engineering and are being actively used by marketers to let people know of their products, increase awareness and build hype.

As people become more and more social on the Internet, tweetups are likely to become more prevalent. A lot of online services have been created around tweetups and their organization and promotion. As a result, ad hoc rules have been created.
