Tweetup Last Night

Posted by Andrew on January 11, 2008

The thing I like the most about Twitter in comparison to all of the other socnet tools out there (yeah, I’m talking about you, FB), is that it is so good at facilitating offline, in-person gatherings where you get to meet so many great people in your area. Last night, a bunch of DC-area twitterers (and Baltimore) met up at Jimmy’s Tavern in Herndon, and it was a great time with some people I’d previously met, and some I hadn’t.

Topics of discussion ranged from the new Nationals ballpark, the presidential race, blogging strategies, corporate social media strategies, why Peter Angelos sucks, “twuck” vlogging, web start-ups and venture financing, and, of course, Twitter. I will blog about some of these topics and the insights discussed soon, but until then, the shout-outs…
