Last night I had the pleasure of attending a Twitter party of “Tweetup” at the Jamaica Pegasus in Kingston. Tweetups are all the rage worldwide and is defined as an organized or impromptu gathering of people that use Twitter. The Jamaica Pegasus a leading business hotel in Kingston who decided to host it’s first ever tweetup to celebrate the growth of its Twitter following since joining in September 2009 as well as reaching out to it’s customers and attracting new ones by exposing them to the facilities and services provided by their hotel.
It is good to see a more and more Jamaican companies embracing social media and learning how to it can enhance their business. I must applaud the Jamaica Pegasus and it’s forward thinking team and hope many other local companies realize the opportunities that social networks provide. Lots of pictures from the event below.
