Tweetup: A meeting of folks that use Twitter. For those unfamiliar, Twitter is a micro-blogging platform: Conversations in 140 characters.
Twitter has been gaining in exposure for its ability to rapidly share information across the globe. Some twitter users most likely suffer from ADHD with how frequently they post and check their accounts… 😉
Getting a gaggle of tweeters to gather in the same location at roughly the same time can be like herding cats. @kenburbary recently organized a tweetup for any and all SouthEast Michigan Twitterers. It got publicized through twitter and facebook was utilized to handle further notications and RSVP’s. This past Monday, more than 80 tweeple got together at the BW3’s in Novi, for socializing, networking and some light eats and drinks!
A yeoman’s effort for sure, @bchesnutt took on the responsibility of trying to gather names and handles of all who attended.
