Tweet-ups and Relish
Last night saw the gathering of Captonian tweeters at Relish in town for a tweet-up (meeting of Twitter users). Relish was a great choice of venue for the evening and accommodated everyone perfectly. The event was held in honour of Mike Stopforth’s trip to the Cape. Many turned out for the occassion which made the evening, in my opinion, a great success.
Meet-ups and Tree Planting
Tweet-ups are such a great way to meet people. At each one I have been to, I have met new people and gotten to chat with those that I have met before and discuss things further. I find it very interesting to listen to others, find out more about what they do and enjoy doing, and to learn more about them. Last night, I met a wealth of great tweeters and had some great conversations. I look forward to the next Tweet-up (going to Union was discussed?).
Tomorrow morning sees what I believe to be the first “tweet-up for a cause”. Tweeters will be planting trees at the Christel House school in Ottery to aid in the construction and development of the school’s grounds. The innitiative is part of a campaign to raise R7 million to fund the building and maintainance of the school and it’s grounds. It means giving a small amount of your time to assist a worthy cause that will benefit a virtually limitless number of children in the development of life skills and fundamentals to building a better future. For more information, follow @ChristelHouseSA on Twitter.
Thanks to everyone who came out last night. It was great to meet you all. I look forward to seeing you all tomorrow morning at Christel House. Thanks to @cow_grrrl for organising last night’s procedings.
