KEZI 9 News will host its first mobile Tweetup this year in an effort to boost donations to the station’s annual Toys for Tots campaign. KEZI 9 News’ Brandi Smith will be driving around to designated spots from the map below in Eugene and Springfield to pickup your donations for Toys for Tots. If you donated and want to share your experience, or if you simply want to chat with Brandi, you can use the hashtag #mobiletweetup. Since the concept of a mobile Tweetup is relatively new, here’s a breakdown of how it works.
What is a mobile Tweetup?
The concept is simple: Tweetups traditionally bring Twitter users together in a single spot (meetup + Twitter = Tweetup). During a mobile Tweetup, KEZI 9 News and Brandi Smith bring the Tweetup to you. Donation stations are set up in advance of the Tweetup to collect for Toys for Tots. On the day of the Tweetup, Brandi and a crew of Marines drive around to each predetermined location to pick up the donations. Along the way, they Tweet what they’re up to.
How can I participate?
Donate! Drop off your donation at one of the predetermined donation stations. Use the hashtag #mobiletweetup from your Twitter account to spread the word about mobile Tweetup.
