What started as an interactive conversation about the news has grown into a vibrant community gathering online every night. The backchannel not only discusses the news of the day, it helps create it â€“ shining a light on the good news in our city and promoting positive ideas.
It's time to get the #backchannel
together in real life.
We're excited to be hosting the first #backchannel
tweetup. What's a tweetup? It's an informal social gathering where you have a chance to meet your twitter friends face-to-face. Our #backchannel
tweetup will be loaded with plenty of special guests, one-of-a-kind giveaways and a lot of fun.
You'll have a chance to meet and greet members of the @WXYZdetroit
team, including @SClarkWXYZ
The lovely and talented @ErinLCummings
(Detroit 1-8-7's Dr. Abbey Ward) will also be on hand as we live tweet our favorite new show, @Detroit187ABC
Copper Canyon is loaded with big screen TVs, speedy WiFi, delicious food and craft beer, so come early and plan on staying late. We'll be live tweeting the #7at7
and the #backchannel
throughout the night. Make sure you power up your laptop or smart phone.
We'll be drawing names throughout the night to win VIP tours of the @WXYZdetroit
studios, opportunities to live tweet the news from backstage with @SClarkWXYZ
plus other cool prizes from Copper Canyon and @BeerTodd
Come out to have a great time, meet the #backchannel
and support our favorite ABC shows. This is going to be a fun night.
Added bonus: Bring a pair of new gloves or mittens for @ErinLCummings
new charity @Mittens4Detroit
will say thanks with a coupon for one FREE Just Baked Cupcake.
