White House Tweetup: South Korea Arrival Ceremony or "Totally worth it."

Summary: 
Read the story of the White House Tweetup. The event was nearly moved inside due to heavy rain, but the rain lightened up in time to accommodate tweeps that came from across the country.

Today, we hosted the largest White House Tweetup to date -- a chance for hundreds of our facebook fans and twitter followers to attend the Republic of Korea Arrival Ceremony on the South Lawn of the White House and tweet all about it. The event was nearly moved to a smaller space inside the White House due to heavy rain. Thankfully, the rain lightened up just in time to hold the ceremony outside as planned and accommodate "tweeps" from across the country.
