DENVER, CO--(Marketwire - September 22, 2009) - CSIA, Colorado's Technology Association, is aiming for a place in the Guinness Book of World Records by organizing the world's largest TweetUp. A TweetUp is a large gathering of tweeters who are tweeting at the same time from the same physical location.

The TweetUp is the kick-off activity for DEMOgala. With more than 125,000 people employed in IT in Colorado, the DEMOgala brings the country's top thought-leaders to Denver while highlighting some of Colorado's innovative tech companies for the region's largest conference for technology professionals.

The TweetUp will take place on Friday, September 25, at the World Trade Center Plaza at 16th Avenue and Court Street in Denver. Participants will be required to sign-in when they arrive so that they can be included in the official count for the Guinness Book of World Records.

"This record-setting TweetUp is a great way to raise Colorado's visibility as one of the nation's top locations for innovative and disruptive technology," said Su Hawk, president, CSIA. "It demonstrates how social media is revolutionizing communications, as technology is transforming industries across the globe. We are very proud of Colorado's great technology industry, sectors, innovations, and professionals, and DEMOgala will be a valuable conference for anyone involved in technology to learn the new trends, how to be more effective, and ultimately, how to be more successful."
