On July.10th we hosted our very first “tweet up”. If you aren’t up on the current social networking lingo, a “tweet up” is a real-life social event where Twitter users get together. Some tweet ups take place in coffee shops, others in local parks. We hosted ours at the Martell cottage in Point du Chene.
We dubbed our gathering MarTwixer. Why? Our super brilliance allowed us to come up with the name by blending a bunch of relevant words together: Martell (Mar) with Twitter + mixer (Twixer). Tada! MarTwixer is born!
So, as other tweet ups inevitably happened around the world where people probably drank too-strong, over-priced coffees and nibbled on stale baked goods while politely dabbing their lips with a napkin, we mingled outside and cooked meat over an open flame. Oh yeah! We had some good laughs and are thinking we definitely need to do this again.
If you aren’t following us on Twitter yet, please do! Here’s a link to our Twitter profile, as well as everyone who attended the MarTwixer:
@rhondacallow (okay, she wasn’t at the MarTwixer, but that’s not her fault. She’s the one writing this blog post, but is stuck on the Pacific Coast of Canada, on Vancouver Island. Don’t hold it against her! She really wanted to be there!)
For those of you who were at the MarTwixer, leave a comment letting us know what you thought the best part of the tweet up was. For those who didn’t or couldn’t attend, let us know if you’d be interested in attending one in the future. To see more photos from the MarTwixer, we’ve got a few posted on our Facebook page, and Marc Grandmaison has a bunch here (which is where all the great images posted here came from).
