Sports took a backseat to social networking at Chukchansi Park on Thursday.

The Fresno Grizzlies hosted the third annual "Great Fresno Tweetup" at the downtown ballpark Thursday evening. Hundreds of Twitter users grabbed their cell phones, and some beers, to take in the game while tweeting.

The event is meant to help local businesses and residents network through the popular social networking service -- or just get out and have fun!

"We tweeted a ton of pictures today of ourselves," said Katherine Good.

"I was meeting a lot of people in person for the first time. Wishing them a happy birthday," said Debra Tempesta.

"I'm just tweeting about the game... having a blast!" said John Esquivel.

Thursday night was also "Thirsty Thursday," meaning one-dollar beers.

The Tweetup took place on an area called the "Tweet Deck" overlooking left field.
