#muckedup is also bringing its community into the real world: The site is hosting its first New York City event on September 24 (#muckedup has also held meetups in Los Angeles, Boston, and San Francisco). “After seeing the success of the Twitter chat, we decided the next step would be to get people together in person, the ultimate social media,” Galant says.

#muckedup chats begin every Tuesday at 8 p.m. ET; #wjchat is every Wednesday, also at 8 p.m. ET.
