#RDtweetup Red Deer Tweet Up brings out crowds

Well, it was a small crowd, yet an enthusiastic crowd.

As one of the organizers, along with Dean Owen of RDTV.ca, I was delighted to see those @twitterpeople greeting each other in-person; exchanging stories about the benefits of social media to their business, their personal and professional brand, and the opportunities for business promotion; and most of all sharing a lot of laughs. Sure, we tweeted the discussions, called up Internet pages on our netbooks, and shared our latest app finds and uses for new technology, but most importantly we met some fellow tweople and found some new followers.

The offers to host the next #rdtweetup were coming in before we'd even left the Capri Centre and so I'm sure it will be soon. Rumour has it will be hosted by Idea Market July 27. Search Twitter for our hashtag, join our facebook page, follow me @Loreleifc or @pinnaclecomms, and see you there!
