Hello. I’m Tonyo Cruz @tonyocruz of TweetUpMNL.
Thank you, thank you for coming. Thank for watching and tweeting. Thank you to our speakers. Thank you to our supporters AIM, Smart, Globe, Sureseats, Ayala Malls, and Starbucks.We also thank MiLi, Oishi, Unilab, Team Manila and Chops Chicago Steakhouse. Thanks to our volunteers and to those who have been working behind the scenes or snaking around us, the production team. Palakpakan naman natin sila.
TweetUpMNL is happy to be a co-organizer of your Social Good Summit. We are simply people like you, young ones and the once young. We’ve been coming together since 2009 and we’re happy to organize parties, small ones and big ones such as this summit and the Social Media Day. By the way, two of our Twitter friends are now husband and wife. Sana kayo din. Hehe. Sana makasama namin kayo.
We hope that you enjoyed seeing your Twitter timeline come alive here at the Social Good Summit – seeing people you follow on Twitter in real life, flesh and blood.
We hope we go back home with the take away that we can make social media work for social good, for making a difference in our communities and our country. How? By solving problems, big and small, to bring about change. By not being the problem.
Also, we must not forget to be champions – champions of those who are still not online, our kababayans who have yet to enjoy social media. No Filipino kid or lola should be left behind.
Again, thank you very much and see you on Twitter and at the next Tweetup.
