Last Friday afternoon, the following twitter message was sent by @mcmac51: “anyone up for an off-cycle #tpt tonight? #tp t and an unscheduled Twitter Poker Tour event got started.
@mcmac51 contacted @tracyjsnell @cprpoker and then got over 21 people together at 9 pm on a Friday night for what was called the “#tpt Exhibition Match”, the first of its kind for the “Twitter Poker Tour”.
This shows just one example of the power of Twitter to help people with similar interests get together. I am sure there are many other examples that could be found.
Have you ever used Twitter to gather a group of like minded people for an event? What was the purpose of your event? What was the response you received? Did you find that Twitter was the tool for you?
