What is a Mobile Tweetup?
The concept is simple: Tweetups traditionally bring Twitter users together in a single spot (meetup + Twitter = Tweetup). During a Mobile Tweetup, KIRO 7 and Jenni Hogan bring the Tweetup to you. Donation locations are set up in advance of the Tweetup to collect dontations in support of Catch A Cure For Cancer.

On the day of the Tweetup, Jenni and a crew of sponsors and supporters drive around to each predetermined location to pick up the donations. Along the way, they Tweet what they're up to while KIRO 7 livestreams the entire event on kirotv.com.
During Jenni Hogan's Mobile Tweetup Video, she joined Daryl Summer on Warm 106.9 for a live radio interview about the Mobile Tweetup, The Moyer Foundation, and how Warm listeners helped raise nearly $11,000 to help find a cure. Watch the in-studio interview here (via. KIROTV.com):
