I have just got back from my first Twitter Meet-up (tweetup) at Christchurch’s Divine Cafe.
Quite an interesting experience. It’s strange to walk into a cafe and up to a group of strangers sitting around a table and say “So … are you the people from Twitter because if not you’re probably wondering what the hell I’m talking about right now”. It’s also one of the few occasions where people have had to introduce themselves twice; once with their real name and once with their Twitter ID. I had it pretty easy as my Twitter ID is my name: www.twitter.com/marklincoln kinda boring really!
The event was quite a good experience though. It’s great to put a face to the Twitter ID and meet a lot of great business people from Christchurch’s relatively small community. I look forward to the next #chchtweetup!
