And some of you might think “What the heck is “Twittwoch”?”. Well, here comes a quick round-up. Twittwoch is a German non-profit organisation that arranges regular Social Media Come-Togethers and Workshops. These give (business) people an opportunity to exchange ideas about social media face to face.
The name “Twittwoch” derives from “Twitter” and “Mittwoch”, German for “Wednesday”, and so the most regular event still is the Twittwoch-night which happens once a month across several cities in Germany like i.e. München, Berlin, Frankfurt, Stuttgart, Essen and Hannover. Just that the topic is not anymore exploring the new opportunities of Twitter, instead it is an exchange about all kinds of social media topics.
Twittwoch thought it is about time that all the nice small social media initiatives get appreciated, the ones that often get run by one or only a few people, with lots of enthusiasm but often with little or no financial support.
Until the 1st of October you can suggest new candidates – please note that only projects in German language can enter the competition!
You might already have discovered that here are different categories you can vote in, and of course you can vote for all of them if you wanted to.
And that you really should do – VOTE!
Each project needs 250 Facebook-Likes to get into the second round – until the 15th of October. All projects with 250 Likes will enter the second voting round. For details, please take a look at the rules here.
The lucky winners will be presented on the 10th of November at the ConventionCamp Hannover, which is an annual conference where all kinds of people from economy, research and web 2.0 together come together for knowledge exchange and discussion.
Again, now it is your turn to vote! You do not have to be German to do that, but obviously you need some German to find your way around the site…
Your choice. Everything is still possible.
