What is it all about?
The popular Ealing Tweetup [#ealingtu] is back for another blast of Social Media networking, music and drinks on July 25th!

This event has grown from a small group of west London neighbours to one of the biggest and best social media events in the city. It is not dominated by tech or PR professionals - there are teachers, politicians, actors, and all walks of life all connected by their love of blogging and social media - especially Twitter.

It's the eve of the London Olympic games and Ealing Tweetup founder @markhillary - who left Ealing for São Paulo in 2010 - will be back in town as he is one of the 100 BT Olympic Storytellers! http://j.mp/mhstoryteller 

Back in the Rose and Crown
As always, the Tweetup will take place in the Rose & Crown (Fullers) pub in South Ealing. Both @haydens30 and @markhillary will be there to welcome regulars and newbies alike... 

And we have a sponsor for the drinks...
This time we are sponsored by a giant in social media, Teleperformance, the biggest customer experience company in the world. Operating in 49 countries with over 130,000 employees they know all about customer service. If you tweet a complaint to your supermarket or phone company, it is probably these guys who are responding and helping you... 

Thanks to @teleperformance we can offer free drinks from the bar - until the very generous tab runs out - and they will be sponsoring several competitions for attendees...!

Thank you also to Fuller's - the brewery. They will be offering the first 200 pints free in addition to the sponsorship tab..!

BibleCode Sundays playing their NEW ALBUM live - first time ever heard!
London Irish favourites The BibleCode Sundays @biblecodesunday will be playing live from 9pm. In the past year the BCS has opened for Van Morrison, Thin Lizzy, Texas, and recently toured with The Dropkick Murphys and Elvis Costello - these guys are a quality act you can't afford to miss!

Their third album will be released soon and the first part of their set will feature the band playing the entire new album from start to finish! After a quick break for a pint they will return with some BCS classics and a few select covers.

The BCS will be supported earlier in the evening by @2_mags. http://www.bcsofficial.com

London 2012
The day before the Tweetup Ealing will receive the London torch, the day after the tweetup is the first Team GB football match and the day after that is the official opening ceremony for the games so why not get into the Olympic spirit early by enjoying some great music, and networking with the most connected professionals in town?
