Google might be doing something a tad unprecedented (well, unprecedented in their own history, anyway). The company is sending out invites to their October 4th event to non-press folks who just happen to be big fans of the big G.
One of our very own received an invite to the event in his Twitter DMs, with Google expressing the following:
We love that you love Google, and on October 4th we’re going to introduce something new for you to love (youtu.be/aNnCtmyujLA) at a private event in San Francisco. We’d be honored to have you as our guest. If you’re interested in joining us, please respond to this note and confirm your email address. We’ll then send over the full details.
9to5’s Stephen Hall also received evidence of such happenings, so it sounds like if you happen to be a big fan of Google, Android, or all their things, you might want to keep an eye out on your Twitter DMs.
It’s not unheard of for a company to invite fans to events that are intended for press purposes. Samsung regularly does it with their unboxed showcases, and T-Mobile loves having people over for concerts and such. It’d be quite new for Google, though, and if they’re breaking protocol for this October 4th event then the hype that it’s one of their most significant announcements yet certainly seems plausible.
