Twitter can save you money while finding fun family events

How a Katy writer/mom-to-be uses Twitter to find fun while working from home

Twitter is an easy way to follow the information that you want without too much effort. Businesses are seeing this growing trend and using it to build their followers. I’m an at home freelance journalist so I follow many businesses and people on Twitter to help find topics and what is of public interest. But recently I discovered that what began as a business tactic is quickly becoming an avenue for finding family fun!

In my writing I cover a lot of events so I follow all the popular Katy and Houston area event venues. By doing so I’ve found that most of them offer special coupons and specials for their Twitter followers!

The Houston Museum of Natural Science and the Houston Symphony are taking this a step further by hosting a special event for their Twitter followers. This Friday, June 4 if you follow them on Twitter you can join them for a special night with a private viewing of the Hubble IMAX 3D and a special performance by the Houston Symphony at their first ever Tweetup event.

 Guests will get to enjoy the show and the performance at a special discounted price. Plus there will be light bites and drinks for all to enjoy while you mix and mingle with fellow Twitterers. They will also have access to Twitter so guests can tweet before and after the events. For more information on this event you can visit the Facebook evite http://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=106708386041974&ref=mf or follow either the Houston Museum of Natural Science @hmns or the Houston Symphony @housymphony both on Twitter.

It just takes a little bit of time to set yourself up to follow the things that interests you and your family. Follow them on Twitter and take a few minutes each day to glance over what they are tweeting. You never know when you may find a great coupon or a special event that will make for a fun family event this summer.

If you follow any Katy/Houston area venues that you feel others should follow as well please tell us about it in a comment!
