Creating immersive experiences and breaking geographical boundaries with #Tweetups
Twitter has announced the launch of #Tweetups in partnership with Shared_Studios (@sharedstudios). Through this initiative, they have created 40 offline portals around the globe fostering dialogue between nations on various topics. In India, it is located in Delhi at Select CITYWALK in Saket enabling anyone to walk into this portal, and instantly talk with another person across the world about anything under the sun. #Tweetups will stay live till 4th of August.
Twitter serves the public conversation, and is the best way to see what’s happening in India and to talk about it. Fostering conversation and dialogue across various topics has the potential of catalysing cultural exchange.
#Tweetups aim to take the online conversation offline, breaking down barriers between diverse cultures and ethnicities through the power of conversation. Shared_Studios has activated #Tweetups in 40 locations across the globe, from New York to Nairobi, Seoul to Sao Paulo and Los Angeles to London.
While live, Tweetups will host a series of curated, experiential activities, including group conversations, bursts of music and dance, and topical discussions around women empowerment and other shared interests. Conversations in these #Tweetups will be started and moderated by local curators.
Some of the conversations to look forward to:
On July 30th, the cast of the upcoming movie Khandaani Shafakhana, Sonakshi Sinha (@sonakshisinha), Varun Sharma (@varunsharma90) and rapper Badshah (@Its_Badshah) will have a conversation in line with their movie’s campaign ‘Baat toh Karo’, which seeks to open up and normalise the dialogue around sex and sexuality. You can also follow @sonakshisinha as she will go live from her Twitter handle sharing the experience.
