Reds Announce #RedsTweetUp Event

The Cincinnati Reds are dipping their toes into the social media promotions arena. Today they announced a TweetUp event for the Tuesday, September 28 game against the Houston Astros.

The Cincinnati Reds have a special evening planned for our Twitter fans during the final home stand of the season. Catch the Reds vs. Astros on Tuesday, September 28th in our special TweetUp Section at Great American Ball Park along with several of Cincinnati’s favorite Sports Bloggers and Tweeters. The group will be located in the Sun/Moon Deck seats (section 145) where seats are only $11 (regularly $22). There will be many “celebrity tweeters” on hand to participate in the night’s festivities and greet fans.

I wonder if they’re going to do anything to address the piss-poor reception AT&T has at the park. I know that every time I’ve been to a Reds game this year that Twitter and the internet has been inaccessible. If reception isn’t improved, they’d better be ready with a Fail Whale poster.

If you’re in the area and have a Twitter account, it sounds like a good time. Tickets can be purchased here.

    I brought up the reception issues with Lisa Braun a couple of weeks ago. She said they will work on it. I suggested adding a special wifi connection if they could, so hopefully that’ll help.

    Are you guys going to make it down for the game?

    Weeknight games are too difficult for us to attend, unfortunately. It sounds like a fun time, though.
