Are you on Twitter? Do you just not understand? Well if you are not on Twitter and y0u were at the Nascar Races in Las Vegas you missed out on a surprise driver appearance.
A Tweet-Up is a gathering, scheduled on twitter, where followers of a certain group or sport gather in person – stepping out from behind their computers and smart phones.
In the case of Nascar – these Tweet-Up’s have been organized by SBNation.com‘s Jeff Gluck. Usually he can get one of the twitters from the garage to join him. You will often see T.J Majors – the spotter for Dale Earnhardt Jr. at the gatherings.
Jeff is not the only Nascar Media Regular using Twitter to reach out in new ways to their readers. Bob Packrass from SceneDaily.com and frequent contributor to Siruis Nascar’s Radio media discussions also attended. Nascar Bloggers Farrah Kaye from TheBleacherReport.com and Toby Christy from RubbingsRacing.com were twittering live from the event.
This week’s special guests were Scott Speed and his wife Amanda. Scott drives the #82 Red Bull Toyota. He and Amanda are well known as two of the most entertaining people to follow on Twitter from the Nascar Garage.
