Using the online conversation starter, and micro-blogging site Twitter, we conducted a stand up comedy event in 2010. We believe it was a world first. It was called “twandup10“. Our first effort with #twandup10 was successfully exhausting and we all made some valuable observations, reservations and hesitations about running another! Something we are considering though. Running another that is
In essence however, the event runs with official “Twingetwits” (online twitter comedians) sharing one liners in theme whilst being heckled, who are then judged by vote on twitter at the end of a thirty minute session. Judging was based on Twingetwits having displayed interaction, humour, judgement and an ability to engage, amuse and be retweeted!

The #twandup10 tweet stream got messy, busy and fast, but it was #fun!
