Last Thursday, San Francisco bid adieu to the first ever Chirp conference – an event devoted to developers building apps for Twitter. And while there was earlier drama surrounding the event and even some remarkable news during the keynotes on day one of the event, in the end, Twitter threw one heck of a party that seemed to say “thank you all for showing up, this is how we party with friends”.
Held at the 1015 nightclub in San Francisco, Twitter’s after-party was pretty much a technology all-star event and the company seemed to make sure you knew that you were in a posh nightclub and were well taken care of. From an open bar throughout the night to practically four rooms of music and beats from great DJs, this was certainly the place to be that night. But Twitter had a few “surprises” in store for folks at the 1015 club. In the main room, two DJ booths were set up for some very important guests. The first one was BT, a renowned DJ originally from the Bay Area and now travels around the world. He definitely got the crowd riled up and ready to move. Then around 11pm, the main event took the stage. He had made a surprise appearance at the Chirp conference talking about his experience at Twitter and now he was back at the after-party not to mingle, but perform: Will.I.Am of the Black Eyed Peas hit the stage for what amounted to nothing short of an awesome non-stop performance. For the next four hours, Will.I.Am played the DJ and continued to get the crowd going.
From what I saw, there was also a bevvy of who’s who at the Chirp party, including Mashable’s Ben Parr, oneforty’s Laura Fitton, Loic Le Meur, Chris Messina, Dave McClure, Scott Beale, Larry Chiang and countless others.
