I attended my very 1st “Tweet Up” last nite. What is a “Tweet Up” you might ask. A “Tweet Up” is a meeting that takes place amongst people who are connected someway or another on Twitter. This event was hosted by a Twitter friend of mine named @SwarthyDaisy. @SwarthyDaisy and I have been friends on Twitter for quite some time so i was very excited when I heard that she was putting this event together. Held at Thai Fusion and aptly called “Thai Tweet Up” this meeting far exceeded anything that i expected. I found the ambiance of the restuarant to be very inviting.
I was greeted at the door by @SwarthyDaisy. Even though she and I have attended several of the same events, we had never met face to face. Its always fun meeting people that i have chatted with online. She is just as friendly and outgoing as i thought she’d be. I was the 1st one there so I helped her and her husband set up the giftbags that she’d prepared for us.
The bags were filled with various items that I cant wait to try!!
|I especially loved my pick!!
