Don’t be fooled by the seriousness in our faces on the photo above – this MauiTweetUp was actually fun! Just look at @DJSmook shirt – Get some! Hmm, “get some what”? For Maui Tweet Up – it’s getting something more than a 140 character tweet! It’s getting to know Twitterfriends in real life (IRL) so that they not only remain digital friends but become real friends as well.
In most of our previous tweetups, we just casually chat, but yesterday I decided to try something new. We gathered together and gave a chance for everyone to introduce themselves to the group. A very interesting group of Twitters indeed! This is a bunch of people you would want to meet and hang around with – I kid you not! If you are on twitter, searched #MauiTweetup and you’ll see all the photos taken and the encouraging “nice meeting you” tweets everyone there are sharing.
I still have a lot to share about the benefits of attending a tweet-up but I have to get ready for work right now. I will try to post more later. In the meantime, here’s the list of the twitter handle of tweeps who were there. If you are on twitter, make sure to follow them! :
List in random order: @lamourwedding @twmedianet @MauiHawaiiInfo @webnelly / @mauibyphoto and lovely wife Cindy @ucsmiles @@fashinator1985 (her account is private but if you may try sending sending request to follow if you’re not a spammer) @hawaiianobrien @jamarilyn @jalove @peterliu47 @raatz @djsmook @tikitales @blackwatchjr and @yukilei (yukilei is new, she has that account but hasn’t tweeted yet. It was nice having her there.)
Marilyn ( @jamarilyn ) wrote a nice post about the Mauitweetup. Click here to go there.
I have a feeling that next tweetup is even gonna be even bigger and better. Maybe we’d do a potluck! For now, see us all at Twiterville. Aloha!
