Museum Tweetup

Monday 27th March 2017



The Vestry, Southampton

Please note change of date - from 20 to 27 March 2017.

What's a Tweetup? It's when online contacts meet face to face to network.

Some of the most proficient museum Tweeters in the area will be there, if you are a social media whiz you'll be able to exchange success stories and tips - if you're new to this kind of thing and want to talk to others about how they are using social media to involve new audiences in their museums and collections, this is a great opportunity.

Our Tweetup is scheduled to coincide with #MuseumHour  - so if you're curious about how hashtag hours work and would like to try one out in a friendly supportive environment, this is your chance.

We'll be meeting at atmospheric cafe bar The Vestry, 61 Commercial Road, Southampton SO15 1GG - just round the corner from the railway station.

Buy your own drinks, nibbles provided.

You'll need a Twitter handle to register for this event, if you don't have one yet, info is here: Getting started with Twitter
