The concept is fairly straighforward; combine Social Media phenomena with the Flash Mob phenomena; and what you get is a FlashMob MashUp. Far as I know this is the first of it kind group; and as such, the rules and methods have yet to be written.

What now?

The idea is too "buzz up" exciting events as they happen; intentionally driving max participation. As more and more TweetUp members arrive at an event or hotpspot; they would tweet "testimonials" via the associated "tweet stream" to everyone else; causing even more motivation for even more attendees and more testimonials. Testimonials are short spot reports; and are encouraged throughout the duration of the event; to maximize the potential buzz storm ... and eventual FlashMob - a crowd of people showing up at one location at a near spontaneous moment.

I envision two potential scenarios; concept one goes something like this; an event is schedule on meetup.com with the clear intention of finding the most interesting event or hot spot, after party in town, during a specific time period ... say for instance ... one weekend night; and creating a "buzz storm" eventually leading to flash-mobbing the event or location, not with a destructive intent; but to maximize the "crowd" experience.

Concept two is similar except the event is spontaneous in nature; for example; you attend a theater event like the upcoming "Wicked" ... lets say the production is so inspiring you "tweet up a buzz storm" about the event and next thing you know ... a great cool and sexy after party spontaneously erupts after the show ends ... maybe at the nearest club ... or maybe at some cool low lit bistro, possibly someone invites the crowd home ... spa, pool .... or shower even!! lol who knows really, but i'm interested in finding out. Are you?
