Social media has a tendency to drive a wedge between people and, well, other people. It’s why tweetups are a thing. I can be social on social media all day long, but that’s not an adequate replacement for real human interaction. It’s just not.
After attending several #SpoCT’s, and enjoying them, I thought it would be fun to start a tweetup centered around craft beer. So I did. And I called it #Spokane #BeersUp, which was a clunky if not effective name. After a while, it was condensed to simply #SpoBU.
The point is, I need to be social beyond business meetings. #SpoBU gives me an excuse to hang out with a few friends and enjoy a cold one. I need #SpoBu.
