Melbourne Twitter Gathering.

I attended a twitter event last Thursday night called “Tweet Up Mellers” hosted by Melbourne TwitStar - Sam Mutmer.

I was intrigued to attend and found my two hours there to be delightful and educational. I had the pleasure of meeting Sam Mutmer who hosted the night and I wish to congratulate Sam on her initiative. Sam is a definite connector and maven (If you have read Malcolm Gladwell’s, The Tipping Point, you will know what I mean).

I had an extremely interesting conversation with William Donovan. William is Web Designer/Developer Specialist with the Bureau of Meteorology. This bright young man has a sparking future ahead of him, and I will watch with interest as William’s career unfolds.

George Hall was also very interesting. George was front and centre as a Twitter volunteer during the recent Victorian Bushfires. George relayed messages helping people with information during the bushfires that proved to be very effective.

My old friends Al Black from Reach Local and Jason Watson from Tomato Source also attended and were in fine form.

I highly recommend the next “Tweet Up Mellers” and I suggest that you join Sam for her Twitter updates.
