"A Tweetup is an organized or impromptu gathering of people that use Twitter. Come along to meet your population health colleague tweeters; meet people you follow on Twitter in real life; find new tweeters to follow; share tips and tricks on making the most of Twitter. This is an informal 'meet up' for those who use, and those who want to use, Twitter for population health"
