Alaska Tweets (alaskatweets.com) was initially setup by @jmproffitt as a place to post announcements and updates about Tweetups or other social media events in and around Anchorage. That was back in early 2009. It’s taken off since then.

These days we’ve got a host of Alaska tweeters that gather formally and informally, sometimes announced on this site, sometimes at the last second and often by chance. You may find following @Valette, @jdfrankl, @MKinMotion, @Mayor_of_Twtr and others quite useful in finding out what’s going on in Alaska Tweets land.

Got an idea for a Tweetup? Propose it amongst your Twitter friends — no permission necessary! And we can even provide promotion here on alaskatweets.com if you let one of the editors know (listed in the sidebar).

By the way, the first Tweetup happened on January 8, 2009 Tweetup at KSKA Public Radio. Check out our photos (and add your own) on the Alaska Tweets Group Pool on Flickr.
