Oh yes I AM blogging ’bout this.
After several Tweetups, I’ve noticed the same things happening over and over and I am no longer keeping my piehole shut. So to all who go to Tweetups, PLEASE FLIPPIN’ READ.
1. Organizers: please, I beg you, pick a place where the music is not super duper loud – especially during conferences.
Am I the only one who repeatedly have these conversations?
Person: “Hi I’m adlskjfd.”
Person: “I AM ALKSJLSDF”
Person: “MY NAME IS A:LSKDJSAL, WHAT’S YOURS?”
Me: “I AM SORRY, CAN’T HEAR. TWEET ME!!!!”
Me: (gestures to phone and shows Tweetie, as if to Tweet me)
Me: “SO SORRY. BYE!”
Not sure about you, but the reason I go to swanky bars and pay for overpriced drinks at conferences is to meet and connect with those I’ve been interacting with online in, you know, person. I am tired of losing my voice just to learn someone’s name. Especially after a conference where the yelling happens three or four days in a row.
