Dear Twitter friends, followers, and strangers -
A lot of people have been asking me when the next Marin TweetUp is. The answer is: I don't know. :-) Due to feeling overwhelmingly busy I haven't had the desire to organize one. Instead I have been inviting tweeps to events organized by others that I happen to be going to or wish I was going to.
If you have the urge to plan and organize a TweetUp, please feel free to do so! I'm only one of the TweetUp organizers. ANYONE on Twitter can organize a TweetUp! You should try it. It's fun to meet new people. If you want me to list your TweetUp on our Marin TweetUp calendar, I will. Just let me know.
I've also heard people grumble that they were not notified about a TweetUp or were not personally invited. If I organize a TweetUp and post it on here or Twitter as an open event - consider yourself invited. I cannot personally contact each and every person, although I would love to, but that kind of takes away the point and spontaneity of a TweetUp. Might as well just make it a party and send out an evite.
The best way to stay in-THE-know about the upcoming TweetUps is to register right here on this site and you will receive a monthly email reminding you that a TweetUp may be coming up. Or you could follow me closely on Twitter for when I randomly tweet about upcoming events, but as you know, on Twitter it is easy to miss things.
Speaking of TweetUps! The Marin Magazine recently did a feature on us! Check it out here: Marin's Twitterati Thank you to all the tweeps (@alembic, @iPeggy, @dianefischler, @marinmaven, @tonicarr, @fun_master, @thelib and @brainmaker) who showed up for the spur of the moment-some-what-chaotic Aroma Cafe TweetUp photoshoot with the Marin Magazine.
We were VERY bummed our usual Twitter boyz couldn't make it for the photoshoot: @ken_homer, @SanRafaelPolice, and @MikeWolpert! Because the men didn't show, the magazine decided to stick a few random dudes who happened to be in the cafe (and Twitter users) in the photo with us to give the photo a more accurate feel. The random dudes were very patient and went along with it, but the rest of us were a bit perplexed with the point of random dudes in the photo. Perhaps the random dudes will come to one of our TweetUps in the future and we will have a chance to get to know them a little better and will stop calling them the random dudes. :-)
You can read the fun photographer's take on photographing the tweeps, Tim Porter was a patient guy: On the Job: Marin’s Tweeps
If I missed listing anyone who was there that day please shoot me (an email) now and let me know.
