There is a fundamental desire for every Twitter user to crave for interaction. This can only be assured by way of followership, retweets and replies.
If you are a keen Twitter user in Nigeria and even globally, the probability that you have seen this rather queer hashtag #AdoptATweep is very likely.
What exactly is #AdoptATweep?
#AdoptATweep is a combination of three words viz; Adopt, A and Tweep. The only unusual term to a non twitter user is “Tweep” which is twitter lingo meaning “peep” in regular usage.
Adopt means adding a tweep and a Tweep refers to someone who uses the Twitter Social Media platform to drive dialogue. In summary, #AdoptATweep fundamentally means opening up strategies that will see twitter users engage in healthy conversation, follow themselves on twitter and if possible move the conversation from online interaction to offline engagement.
What is the #AdoptATweep all about?
The #AdoptATweep event is the offline representation of the #AdoptATweep concept. It is an innovative event aimed at empowering people to create brands that will attract attention on Twitter. The project involves a quarterly offline event that gathers young entrepreneurs and twitter users to learn twitter growth secrets at a 100% discounted fee. In other words FREE!!! To ensure sustainability of the no-cost drive, the participants are encouraged to embrace the #BYOD trend. #BYOD means bring your own device.
