'Tweet Up' in Denver

Angus organizations to host a gathering for "tweeps" and others Feb. 3.

SAINT JOSEPH, Mo. (Jan. 6, 2011) — The American Angus Association, Certified Angus Beef LLC and Angus Productions Inc. (API) will host a “tweet up” for their Twitter followers and others who would like to learn more about communicating via social media.


“Normally, we connect with friends online after we have met them in person,” says Crystal Young, Association assistant director of public relations. “But in today’s age of Twitter and social media, users often connect only virtually. A ‘tweet up’ allows those who tweet to finally put a face to a name.”


The gathering is scheduled for Thursday, Feb. 3, from 3:30 p.m. to 5 p.m., at the Angus booths during the “Colorful Colorado Wine Tasting Reception” in the NCBA Trade Show.


Attendees will have an opportunity to meet and share more than Twitter’s 140 characters while in a social setting in the trade show.


Anyone who uses Twitter is invited to attend the “tweet up” for discussions about the convention and other current issues affecting the beef industry; just look for the Angus balloon.


For more details or questions, follow the Association, CAB and API using the following Twitter handles: @AngusAssoc, @BlackInkBasics and @ABBeditor, respectively.


“Tweeps” following coverage of the 2011 Cattle Industry Annual Convention and Trade Show can use the hashtag: #NCBA11
