Obama for America NC, President Barack Obama’s reelection campaign office for this state, is hosting a #2012TweetUp digital planning session this Saturday in Charlotte. The event takes place at 2 p.m. at Hair Klaudt Salon and Gallery, 1318 Central Ave., and is an opportunity to “learn the campaign's strategy for digital outreach and activism as we go into 2012,” according to organizers.
If you’ve never participated in a tweetup, it’s a way to connect with people on Twitter regarding a specific topic or cause. The hashtag for the event is #2012TweetUp, and even if you don’t have a Twitter account yourself, you can follow along with the timeline Saturday to see what people are tweeting. While it’s commonly believed that social media purveyors tend to be young, studies have shown the average age increasing as more people are finding it a necessity. The average age of Twitter users is now 39, up by at least five years since Obama last campaigned for presidency.
