Nightlifers need a Twittervention. But, like many addicts, we want to be among like individuals, all obsessed with 140-character updates. Hence the party at Blush celebrating Vegas’ most influential tweeps, i.e. those than can’t put their damn phones down, even at an outing. And I was on the list and guilty as charged.
I arrived at the boutique nightclub after a nightmare drive thanks to freeway construction, a killer storm, a malfunctioning railroad crossing and general tardiness. I received my @BlushNightclub @DeannaRilling lanyard nametag and was handed a glass of blue-tinted champagne, and the tweeting began.
Twitter co-founders — and surprisingly inactive Tweeters — @EV and @Biz eventually showed up and hung out in the VIP area. What they lacked in tweets the Twitterati made up for; I may have tweeted more in one night than I have in a month, much to the delight of those in attendance and the chagrin of my followers who weren’t there. The reason for obsessively tweeting from myself and others? Blush had a Twitter feed on flatscreens around the venue. And anything with a #twitterati tag showed up. As the drinks started flowing, hilarity ensued.
A recap of the night via my tweets and others’:
@brandonroque: Buy the girl a drink next to you while you read this @blushnightclub #twitterati
