I once sat in a room at a large real estate conference and heard a friend say, “I’m kind of a big deal.”
Believe it or not, that friend was NOT Tyler Hurst. Yes, Tyler’s the guy that will “wear his name on his shirt”, will do what he wants, and say what he thinks. Often, he says them 140 characters at a time.
I bet you’ve heard of Twitter, right? I thought so. In fact, if you read this blog, there is a *really* good chance that you have at least a basic knowledge of what social media is.
A lot of people and/or companies use Twitter to convey a message, to build a brand, create relationships. Tyler has done all of the above. And then some.
This Thursday, Tyler Hurst will reach 100,000 tweets. I noticed him creeping up on the number a while back and thought it was only fitting to do a Tweetup.
Of course, I started thinking of the significance of 100,000 tweets. To some, it is no big deal. To others, it’s “kind of a big deal.”
Join us this Thursday at 4:30PM in the bar area at Monti’s La Casa Vieja. It’s a great spot to talk about a tweet of historic proportions. From the days of ham radios to these new fangled smart phones, the setting can’t get any better. Just a block north of the light rail station on Mill Avenue, Monti’s can handle crowds large and small. They have a huge parking lot, as well. Yes, free parking on Mill Avenue is always nice to find.
To be sure, you need to be following Tyler on Twitter. Coming up to this momentous occasion, you should also follow the #TD100k hash tag.
Why: 100,000 is kind of a big deal
When: Thursday, January 19th from 4:30 – ?
Where: Monti’s La Casa Vieja – 100 S Mill Avenue Tempe
Yes, Monti’s has a happy hour from 3-7pm. Come hang out and maybe talk to people in more than 140 characters at a time. In addition to happy hour, Monti’s has the best Foursquare special on Mill Avenue. Heck, Foursquare fan or not, you might even have a chance to visit with the next Mayor.
Even if you are not in AZ, you can follow along. I’m sure we will have some fun with this one.
What will Tyler’s big tweet be about? We’ll know soon enough…
