Non-twitter users are all welcome and hopefully you would join our diversified twitter community after the HanoiTweetUp!
A shout-out to all that have helped me with advice, ideas, support and encouragement to make this networking meet-up come true! A lot of thanks go to @RuthEMortimer, @ourman, @mattlepub, @hanoi_ink, @hegroup, @AC220, @gingerbiscuit84 and @Vietnam720 (organizer of SaigonTweetUp).
Below is my twitter story – only FYI 🙂
My twitter life started less than a year ago, in June 2010, when I began to work on the twitter account of @HanoiGrapevine. At that time, my face looked like this when Brian told me to handle the @HanoiGrapevine twitter account: “ok, cool! But.. twitter.. what is that?! o_O”
And now after 11 months, I have become one of the most active tweeters (or twitterers) in Hanoi and have been trying to introduce and encourage friends to go on twitter and get a “social twitter life”.
Why I love twitter that much? Well, let’s say:
1. It helps me share the info about “what’s on around town” at the fastest speed to my twitter friends.
2. It also keeps me constantly updated with latest info about simply EVERYTHING, from the #HanoiTurtle, #HanoiEarthquake, #SaigonTweetUp to the #RoyalWedding or #BinLadenDead.
3. And it connects me to so many interesting people!
4. Up to you to fill in the list! 🙂
One of the tweeters’ favourite mottos is that “Facebook is for people you used to know and Twitter is for people you want to know”. And towards this purpose, I decided to do a HanoiTweetUp event for the twitter users in Hanoi to meet up and continue to discuss face-to-face about whatever they are discussing on twitter everyday. So..
SEE YOU ALL THERE WITH A SMILE! 🙂
