In 2008 we held 3 major Triangle Tweetups with an attendance from 35 to 70 tweeple. Smaller tweetups such as (lunch, bowling, music, and funpark tweetups were also organized. With the growing popularity of twitter, we held 4 tweetups in 2009 and three events in 2010. There are three tweetups now planned for 2011. Attendees come from all around the Triangle, NC (Raleigh, Durham, Cary, Chapel Hill) and Triangle Tweetups average attendance now ranges from 140 to 220 people.
