Twitter users or tweeps in and around Kingston were treated to another tweetup held at the Jamaica Pegasus on Friday September 3rd. This is the second such event held at the Pegasus as the first Tweetup was held there a couple months ago which I attended and blogged about. I wondered how the organizers would have been able to top the spectacle that was the first edition and I am happy to report that last Friday’s tweetup was the biggest and best yet.
How did they pull it off?
The second edition of the Jamaica Pegasus Tweetup took things up a notch from the 1st one – there was a new location in the Gardens and the Pegasus, a beautiful outdoor location that really opened up the party.
There were many more sponsors and giveaways from local companies like NCB, Calico Jack, Jamaica National, Secrets Resorts and Palace Amusement plus a few prizes overseas companies like Blackberry’s creators; RIM and Boingo Wireless. The MC was the energetic Elva Ruddock and attendees were a lot more free-spirited and not afraid to dance up a storm.
Kudos to Jamaica Pegasus
The Food was good, the drinks kept flowing, the music was pumping, the MC was full of vibes and social interaction was the main goal of the patron. Kudos to @JamaicaPegasus for hosting another great Tweetup! Lots more pictures (Thank you Stunner!) and a video below.
