More Coffee Tweet-ups28 May, 2009
Last week I finally had an appointment with @ikbendAF who calls herself the (Dutch) Twitter ambassador. Because I call myself a (Dutch) Twitter specialist we had to schedule a meeting one on one for coffee. We first met on the Twestival where a friend of hers got a message that I logged in on Brightkite and then they started looking for me. Not too long after we met again in a bar in the Jordaan and she started talking about the photo book she is writing about Twitter. Here we agreed to meet for coffee and talked about twitter and following and tweet-ups and her book and my thesis. Because of mutual friends we also met at two parties the other week whit other tweeple. Some parties can inadvertently turn into a tweet-up. It is great to meet someone who actually knows a lot about Twitter and excange useful links.
Another tweet-up I planned on January 14th was a special coffee meeting for a few friends for which I used twtvite.com. I just bought a lattemento online, a device that makes devine frothed milk foam. Only two tweeple showed up but is was a nice social experiment. In a few days I will have another coffee meeting about croissants, because lately a lot of users I follow are mentioning them. For this meet-up I didn’t invite friends only so I wait and see who will turn up. I probably have to put more effort in tweet-ups, because I do not get much response so far. Maybe I should just spam my followers more.
