Shah Alam, Malaysia – Just last Saturday (3pm - 12 am, October 23, 2011), DiGi held an OctTwtFest at their headquarters and organized by WAGO, Churp Churp, Rain Dough and Reka. The OctTwtFest objective for this year is to :-
2. To put Malaysia on the map, and beat the current Guinness Book of Record which
currently stands at 1,935 attendees at a venue for a twtup.
3. To unlock the Epic Swarm Badge (more than 1000 check-ins at a venue)
Been avid and active twitter user myself, I could not resist myself going there . I quickly RVSP my attendance on their websites despite it was far from my house and limited public transportation around that area. I decided to carpool and arrived around 6 pm when the party goer is arriving in huge wave trying to register themselves to gain access to the venue under heavy rain thunderstorm . By the way, I did bought my La Sardina Camera along (Fischers Fritze) tightly wrapped under water proof bag for a quick lomo action at OctTwitUp. The OctTwitUp is brimming with activity where hunger looking folks are buying food and drink , singing along to music performance by famous artist like or taking picture with them, playing ps 3 games or board games at meeting room, watching movies , buying OctTwtFest clothes or toys while donating at same time, etc. and most importantly, check-in thru FourSquare app whether they are android , Iphone or Blackberry user or even using the free pc provided by the organizer.
Thanks to www.hardwarezone.com, I found out the OctTwtFest successfully garnered 2,615 check-ins on Twitter, breaking the previous world record of 1,935 check-ins held by Detroit Lions football player, Ndamukong Suh. Misson accomplished!
