GLEN SPEY, NY — October 19, 2012 — Green Door Magazine and Large Media will hold Sullivan County’s first “tweetup” November
1516th from 6-8 PM at the Dancing Cat Distillery in Bethel, NY. The event marks the first gathering of Twitter users in what the two companies hope draws social media users from nearby regions, including Orange County, nearby Pennsylvania and northern New Jersey.
What is a tweet up?
A “Tweet Up” is a social media experience that will bring local users of the microblogging platform Twitter together during a designated period of time.
“A tweet up in Sullivan County is yet another positive sign that things are changing. More young people are getting involved, connecting via social media and using technology to get the word out about the Catskills as well as improving our communities”, says Akira Ohiso, Publisher of Green Door Magazine. “I’ve lived here three years and I believe this may be the first tweet up in Sullivan County.”
“The idea of a tweetup is something I’ve organized and taken part in both on a personal and professional level in the past. It’s an excellent way for us to gauge the social media proficiency of the area but more important bring people together and raise awareness for the Catskills,” explains David Binkowski, Managing Partner at Large Media.
Binkowski moved his marketing agency, Large Media, and family up to the Catskills this past summer after having spent the past five years just outside of New York City in New Jersey. He believes there is a growing movement, much like in his hometown of Detroit, Michigan, of younger couples and families making a commitment to “take back their life”, as he put it, and start up their own business in affordable communities.
“We’re your typical weekender-turned-Catskillian resident story”, he concluded, “and are looking forward to meeting and mingling with Catskills Twitterers.”
