The first Tweetup at the White Horse North Bar was a great evening, guest of honour was Emma or E from @Chilternrailway who explained how Chiltern Railways had moved from using Twitter for marketing to using it for Customer Service with disruption updates and now Tweet the Managers where the Manager can sit anywhere with an internet connection and chat with passengers sorting out their myriad of issues.
The Tweetup even brought @birm2lond down from Birmingham to meet E and share his Twitter experiences.
We had a mix of local business people and individuals who use twitter to interact more socially. As in the past the new ideas that came from both sides help all to use the medium to do what they need/want to do.
Eventbrite seemed to be well received as a way of managing the invitations and giving details, so will continue to use that.
