What is BTU
– We are an event planning & promotional service vs just a calendar. (There are least 20 calendars that Bostonians & visitors can use to find events, ) we not only consolidate tweetups*, but importantly promote & help event organizers plan events. We also don’t just aggregate tweetups, we also look for other networking events that honesty help connect people. See below for the different types of events we promote.

We focus on creating unique event experiences via tweetups of any types, sizes for various industries & markets.

Why Tweetups vs a traditional events?
With the advent of social media & advances in technology that allows almost anyone to share experiences with their friends, an event organizer doesn’t have to be the sole creator of content.  Now an event organizer can simply crowd source the event planning, promotion and content creation of event.
Now every event is different and has different goals.

How to submit event to calendar
1. It needs to be a free Social Media, Technology, Business Networking, Entrepreneurship, Start up, or Tweetup of any kind.*
2. Email us the event details (Hashtag, All the twitter accounts associated w/event ie Organizers, Venue, Speakers, Sponsors, etc. The more the better)
3. If you are charging for your event just email us your event details & we can arrange the appropriate affiliate program

*We tend not to promote parties, nightclub events, festivals, or other simply social events since there many options available to learn about those event. The big loophole to this is making the event a tweetup and/or Networking 2.0 event. Almost any event can become a tweetup / Networking 2.0 event with a proper understanding of what a tweetup / Networking 2.0 is and the benefits it can provide you. Please contact us INFO A-T BostonTweetUp DOT COM and we can schedule a Tweetup / Networking 2.0 Coach session with you.

Also note the we take pride in being the most accurate and most trusted source of Tweetups in the New England area. We don’t scrape websites to find events to put on our calendar but rather we hand pick each event that is on our calendar. We want to ensure we provide the Boston area community with the best networking events Boston has to offer from event organizers with high integrity. This is why not all events get automatically approved & we reserve the right to not post an event.
