Que Pasa?

First, Happy Fathers Day to all those Dads that are part of the BostonTweetUp Community!

It’s almost officially summer and things are starting to heat up networking-wise.

There are almost 30 networking events this week!

Note for all the new subscribers: we will only highlight 1-2 events a day in this newsletter and provide a link to the BostonTweetUp Calendar for the rest of the events we promote.

We tend showcase tweetups and networking events that leverage twitter to get the word out about their events. For more info about how we select the events we promote please visit our FAQ.

Note for event organizers: this week we also noted which event registration pages stood out. Hint: If setup your event registration page similar to the one’s we highlight below, we will most likely promote your event in a future newsletter.

Things are also heating up on The Twitters, yes The Twitters ;-), as this week we surpassed 10,000 community members. (I’m not a big fan of the word followers as we are working to build a community here @BostonTweetUp!)

We asked our community, what we should reward our 10,000th member. Patrick, who quickly recognized that he was the 10,000th, humbly suggested we should reward someone else.

I love Patrick’s response!

It’s the essence of what BostonTweetUp is all about, which is to showcase others vs ourselves. Patrick won a signed copy of Twitter of Dummies (written by our MegaTweetUp partners Laura Fitton and Leslie Poston) not that he will need it, but it makes a great gift. 😉

Finally, here’s a list of our past newsletters in case you missed them. In the past we spoke about one of the best mobile business card scanners /networking app on the market, one of the best networking t-shirt companies, and one of the best event summary tools, just to name a few things.

Have a great week and I look forward to seeing you at a tweetup / Networking 2.0 event soon!
