Just for today, in honor of our new site launch and in the interest of continuing to reach out to each other in as many ways as possible, we wanted to post tweet-ups. Tomorrow, we will resume posting letters, of course. By the by, have you sent us a letter lately? Thought about writing one? Go for it! Email them to submissions@dearthyroid.com.

Here’s a question for you: what maybe, possibly, could ever match the amazing community and support we’ve got going on right here at Dear Thyroid? If your first answer would be “nothing” then think again!,   The only thing that could compete with the level of honesty and awesomeness is, actually, a Dear Thyroid Tweet-Up! Yes, a Tweet-Up.

For those of you not familiar with Tweet-Ups, they are, essentially, meet-ups.   You know, groups of Dear Thyroid users meeting up for coffee or dinner or drinks, or whatever other creative and chit-chatty social events we can dream up.   The point is for those of us who normally chat it up via our website to actually meet face-to-face and continue the Dear Thyroid lovefest.

This is open to anyone, no matter where you happen to live. What you’ll do is email us the specifics of the Tweet-Up you have in mind, and we’ll add it to the calendar on our site.   That way, fellow thyroidians from all walks of life and all locations on the planet can check out exactly when and where said Tweet-Up will take place.

But it gets even better!,   Once you get all the details together and actually do meet-up with other Dear Thyroid users, we want to see your lovely, smiling faces.   That means, take pictures!,   What would be even better is if you take pictures of your Tweet-Up in some Dear Thyroid gear — shirts, sweatshirts, tank tops, etc. We want to see you proudly displaying your thyroid disease for all to see!

Let the Tweet-Ups begin!

Got an Q’s? Email us and let’s get this baby going.

    Well, of course, being the social, ahem *butterfly*, I would love a Tweet Up. Unless that means I have to join twitter–the computer already sucks too much time! HowEV, anyone in the North Crackalackin area (uh, North Carolina) give me a shout and we’ll get something going!

    My darling, you do not have to join Twitter at all!

    Sounds fabulous, I will tweet your location and see if we can get some fellow thyroidians to hook up with you.

    This is so exciting!
