Tweat Up is a regular meet up of people on Twitter, a meeting to eat and drink.

Our first Tweat Up was in 2010 with Lucky Chip on a scrappy bit of tarmac in E8. Since then, we've held events with Pitt Cue, Big Apple Hotdogs, under bridges and in tramsheds, in parks and on rooftops. We held the first UK Chilli Stand Off, in Shoreditch last October, and Ribstock in Soho in April this year. So far, no deaths or arrests.
