The turnout was really good (20+ people?) and I got to meet many people who are interested in growing their businesses/interest groups and trying new things in the social media playground. @hajjflemings, @primesuspect, @admore, @snicholson26, @shannonpaul, @kevinbiznet@detroitvoice, @jminni, @charliecurve, @annkucera, @damonhenry… Sorry, I know I’m missing some names!
This meetup gave me a good reason to come back to Twitter a little more often. I just let it slow down for a while (this happens to me on many social network/web services) but following more people in the area should be a good change.
Better yet, new projects and ideas have started sprawling from follow-up calls and messages already. I’m not going to say “I attended a good networking event yesterday”; instead, I’ll say “I went to a Tweetup and it was amazing.”
