W Hotel & Residences hosted one of the largest Tweet-Ups in Doha ever with 150 local tweeters. The topic of Doha Tweet-Up was photography. Qatar and the UAE top the list of Twitter users in the Middle East where the total number of Twitters is about 6.5mn . However, as far as penetration is concerned, Qatar is at the top of the list with 7.8% of the population on Twitter. The idea of the Tweet-Up was to mingle with fellow tweeters and post a few tweet pictures of the gathering and showcase talented photographers work during the event. The snappers had to hand in their pictures for the Photographic Doha Tweet up before September 3. The pictures had to be related to one of W Doha’s passion points - music, fashion or design. Based on these criteria, the winner was chosen by a jury of two of the organisers and Edgar Vaudeville and Clara De Lama from W Doha. The winning pictures are being posted on W Doha’s Facebook page and the greatest of these was showcased on the Mezzanine floor at W Doha for a week.
