What's a Tweetup?

Twitter is a free social messaging utility for staying connected in real-time. A tweetup is a real world social gathering for people who know each other through the online Twitter service.

This is an opportunity for Twitter users to meet in person, network, and have fun.

What's This NHL Tweetup All About?
