A Royal Location for #TweetUpTheHague no 2


At the entrance of the Carlton Ambassador Hotel in The Hague this poster commemorates the 25th birthday of the small Carlton chain of luxury hotels.

I wrote earlier about the history of the hotel:

In 2004 Mr J. Schoon published a small history (ISBN 90-9018992-0) of the Ambassador. Already in the 19nd century the hotel was set up and operated by Mrs Geertruida Vos, a daughter of the owner of the then famous hotel “Zalm” (Salmon) in Gouda which hotel Salmon was one of the first hotels in the Netherlands. Mrs Vos was very successful and therefor her nickname became “Goudvosje” (“little Gold Fox”).

So the Ambassador has a rich history as a hotel in the Hague.

Today it hosted #TweetUpTheHague Royally:


And it pointed us Royally to its

Thanks Carlton Ambassador Hotel for offering your location, the welcome bubbly drink and the snacks! Thanks all co organizers and thanks all participants for being such a bubbly bunch!

Please do add photos if you have them from #TweetupTheHague 01 or do tag the photos if they are not tagged!

What a good initiative to dedicate a blog to the #TweetUpTheHague phenomenon.

This post is given an earlier date than I actually am writing it in order to get a bit of chronological order in the posts.

What is a #Tweetup?

If you Google the question you get something like this from Wordspy

A real world meeting between two or more people who know each other through the online Twitter service.

As simple as that and to be continued…
