After a gap of exactly one year and one day, Tweeple from all parts of the island of Sri Lanka gathered to Dialog Future World in Colombo for the TweetupSL 2; the only annual public Tweetup in Sri Lanka.
First ever public Tweetup in Sri Lanka happened on 26th August 2010, at Coco Veranda with 109 Tweeps participating. The success of the TweetupSL 1, lead to more public discussions about Twitter, and as a result we have saw a steady growth of Twitter usage in Sri Lanka.
This year, we recorded 369 people registering for the TweetupSL 2 and 256 people turning up at the event.
Sponsors @Dialoglk, @CocoVeranda @Pereraandsons, @Gbslk @Kiss898 and @ITNsl added more life to the event. The event, certainly did help all these brands to gain more likeability among the Twitter community in Sri Lanka, and it helped them to increase their followership as well, thanks to the constant @ mentions they received before, during and after the event!
