PAN Tweet-ups

Mobile phonesPublic Affairs News was the pioneer of the 'tweet-up' concept on the UK political scene, holding the public affairs sector's first tweet-up in central London on 8 September 2010.

The second tweet-up was held on 3 February 2011 and the third was on 26 July 2011.

The aim of PAN's tweet-ups is to gather in a relaxed environment with online friends, although PA professionals who do not use the micro-messaging service are equally welcome.
