Hi team @TwitterDev LA,

A ton of cool stuff has happened in the last few months.  Join us @TwitterLA for updates from the TwitterDev team on their product roadmap as well as the Twitter DM API. 

We're honored and excited to also host Piptook and GumGum for an interactive panel on the innovative use of Twitter's APIs. Of course we'll have some tasty food, drink and the usual fun socializing, as well!
