Swarming at Jamaica Pegasus
Once again, The Jamaica Pegasus Hotel raised the bar with it’s 3rd tweetup on Friday February 11, 2011. Local twitter users converged “On top of the world” for the “Tweetheart” themed event. My friend Allison has already covered the main social aspects of the event here: http://nickmack.net/musings/why-the-jamaicapegasus-tweetup-is-relevant so I will go straight to what made my night:
At 8:44pm I felt like I had caught my unicorn when I unlocked the Swarm Badge on Foursquare. This is the most prized badge I have and am proud to now have it since I started promoting Foursquare use in Jamaica months ago. This is not the first event I have been to where I expected to unlock the badge. Originally I expected it to be unlocked at Monster, a party at Chilitos Mexican, however even though over 50 foursquare users attended, they were not all checked in at the same time. The Fiction Lounge also tried to unlock it at one of their events, with no success.
So without further adieu, congratulations to Jamaica Pegasus for hosting the
first Foursquare flashmob in Jamaica. Keep on innovating!
