Cattle Enthusiasts 'Tweet Up' in Tampa

Cattle Enthusiasts 'Tweet Up' in Tampa
Twitter users and friends are encouraged to attend the Angus event Feb. 6.

Each day Twitter is flooded with #agchat, #ranchlife and #beef topics – and that's just the beginning. Get to know the people behind the tweets during a "tweet-up" at the 2013 Cattle Industry Annual Convention in Tampa, Fla.

Hosted by the American Angus Association, Certified Angus Beef LLC and Angus Productions Inc., the third-annual "tweet up" is scheduled for 6 p.m. on Wednesday, Feb. 6 at the Angus booth, #323, during the NCBA Trade Show Welcome Reception.

Twitter users and friends are encouraged to attend the Angus event Feb. 6.

"Whether you're an avid Twitter user or just getting started, we encourage you to come by the booth and meet fellow 'tweeps' in the cattle business," says Jena Thompson, Association assistant director of public relations. "It's an open event for anyone who would like to learn more about online communications."

Attendees will have a chance to meet and share more than Twitter's 140 characters, while in a social setting at the trade show. For more details or questions, follow the Association, CAB and API using the following Twitter handles, respectively: @AngusAssoc, @BlackInkBasics, @ABBeditor and @AJeditor.

"Tweeps" following coverage of the 2013 Cattle Industry Annual Convention and Trade Show can use the hashtag #CIC13. More information on the 2013 Cattle Industry Annual Convention and NCBA Trade Show can be found online.
