Arketians Attend First Tweet-Up


Over 100 Atlanta PR and tech professionals gathered at the new 5 Seasons Brewing Company Wednesday to network, mingle and…..tweet? The tweet-up (twitter slang for an informal gathering) featured HARO founder, Peter Shankman.

In addition to giving away a free weekend stay at the new Loew's Atlanta Hotel, Peter had a chance to converse with many of the excited professionals in attendance, including Mousa Ackall and Amy Leefe (pictured here). Shankman, known for his propensity to think outside the box, noted how continued technological advancements are changing the way we think, communicate and act. The trick is, according to Shankman, to stay optimistic and find ways to channel that technology for the overall societal good.

Spotted in the crowd was Jeremy Porter (Journalistics), Matthew Nagel (Georgia Tech) and Jenny Schmitt (CloudSpark). For more information about Peter and HARO, click here.
