Attention NCBA attendees, producers, social media enthusiasts and cattle community:
The International Brangus Breeders Association (IBBA) is teaming up with Angus to host two tweetups at the upcoming NCBA Annual Convention and Trade Show in Nashville, Tenn., to connect with industry professionals, agriculture advocates and producers from all over the country. Join conversations about current issues, industry topics, social media uses and benefits, or simply visit with some of our industry’s leaders. Wednesday, February 1, at 6:00 pm, join ag and beef tweeps at the American Angus Association booth (#1061) for discussions about some challenges and innovative ideas related to social media. Gather again at the GoBrangus booth (#1637) Friday, February 3, at 3:00 pm, to discuss solutions to those challenges we all face and how we can apply what we learned from the Cattlemen’s College and seminars. Take advantage of the opportunity to get to know the faces behind the Twitter handles, hashtags and conversations happening online.
Wondering what a tweetup is? Urban Dictionary defines tweetup as, “An organized or impromptu gathering of people that use Twitter.” We will not pick on or exclude anyone who doesn’t use Twitter; We will only encourage you to start!
