ASLA to hold first ever tweetup during 2012 Annual Meeting and EXPO

Follow @landarchitects @ValleyCrest to participate in the #ASLA2012 tweetup


Washington, D.C., Sept. 20, 2012 – ASLA and ValleyCrest will be hosting a tweetup during the 2012 Annual Meeting and EXPO. The event will be by the tweet board in the ASLA Commons area of the EXPO at the Phoenix Convention Center, Sunday, Sept. 30, 12:30 - 1:30 p.m.

A tweetup is simply a meet-up for Twitter, where attendees come together to talk about social media and meet others who tweet about similar topics. At the event, ASLA and ValleyCrest will host a conversation about the meeting via Twitter. For those who are new to Twitter or simply want a refresher, ValleyCrest will offer Twitter training during the event to teach participants about hashtags, Twitter chats, adding photos and more.

For those who cannot attend the event in person, ASLA and ValleyCrest invite anyone to participate via Twitter by following #landscapechat and #ASLA2012 and joining the conversation. Leading up to the tweetup, follow ASLA on twitter at @landarchitects for more updates.
