Yesterday I finally made it to my first Twittlis meeting —Twittlis #5.
.oO( About bloody time too! )
Excuse me? “What in the world is Twittlis,” you ask?
Well, I’m glad you did ask that question! :-)
You see, Twittlis is a meeting of people who use Twitter, who also happen to be around Lisboa on the first wednesday of any given month and who also like to chat with other people (which is obviously a given for almost anyone using Twitter.) The fact that this chatting happens over a few beers and, possibly, a nice pub-food-based dinner doesn’t hurt in the least. :-)
The (sub-)thirty-second pitch is, in words of Pedro Pinheiro (the organizer and afaik “father” of the thing):
Completely informal - arrive at any time, leave at any time. Come meet in person the people who you follow or follow you on twitter.com.
The venue that hosts Twittlis is, at the time of this writing, the most excellent O’Gilins Irish Pub and in it, again in Pedro’s own words:
Besides the wonderful assortment of lagers and ales (and non-alcoholic drinks too), there is a good and hearty selection of dinner choices, at affordable prices.
Oh and contrary to popular belief, the conversations are not all geek-oriented. Really. It’s nice! ;-)
