It’s the London Twestival tonight. You can see what I wrote about Twestival in Computer Weekly here.

I’m keen to talk to some old friends, but also to make a few new ones too. I might try recording a few short videos while I am there, vox pops on how people are using Twitter for business. So if you want to tell me how you are using Twitter then come and find me… and don’t get unnerved when I stick my phone camera in your face!

Ealing Tweetup (meet your Twitter buddies, for real!)

Do you use Twitter? Live in or around west London?
Why not meet and greet some other Twitter users from around the area over a pint or three?

I’m organising this ‘tweetup’ so all the local Twitter users get together for a pint and chat – and to meet in ‘3D’. Last time I did this we had over 25 people together for a drink, including school teachers, a local councillor, writers, web design experts, photographers… it was a random mix of west London neighbours and many have stayed in touch.

This time it’s going to be bigger and the pub is even promoting it too – as they want our beer money…! Hopefully we can get some free food or pints from Tom and his team if we get a good crowd along. We might even arrange a Twitter quiz or some other such games to try and drum up some cash for a good cause or something…

It’s a Friday night and Facebook users will be welcome to join us so please come along…

The closest tube is South Ealing, on the Piccadilly line. The 65 bus (Ealing Broadway to Richmond and Kingston) runs right past the pub, so you can also come via Ealing Broadway station (District and Central line tube and fast train link to Paddington)…
