Social Innovators Tweet Up!

Have you ever heard of a tweet-up? Well, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Canada would like to invite you to tune-in to our twitter channel as the Social Innovators of the Youth Summit 2013, to participate in one on May 29th, 2013 at 7:00 p.m. for approximately 30 minutes.

What’s a tweet-up you ask?

Simply put, a tweet-up is an organized, gathering of people on Twitter.
The usual reason for a tweet-up is to gather people with the same interests to ask questions and share ideas and experiences with others as well as to strengthen your personal networks.

In this case we want to ask some questions to youth who attended our Youth Summit 2013 -  and chat with them about their experience.
