Thanks everyone that showed up for the Southeast Texas tweetup. This had to be one of our biggest turnouts to date! We had the tweetup at Starvin Marvins Bar & Grill, a new restaurant/bar that opened up here in the last two months. I was fortunate enough to reserve their private room for free. It was nice being in a cool air-conditioned room instead of out on the patio in muggy Texas heat. We had a good mix of new and old faces. We had tweeters, facebookers and a couple that were neither. I counted 14 people in total. That’s a lot in lil Beaumont,TX. It was a far cry from our humble beginnings of 4-5 we had at the first tweetup. I think everyone had a good time. Some people socialized while others took the opportunity for some social networking.

I did make up some nametags this time around, where I had people write their twitter handles instead of their real names. This gave people the opportunity to match up a face to one’s twitter identity. Since we had a lot of people who used social media at the tweetup, I also broke the news about the Social Media Club of Beaumont that Justin McCullough and I have been working on the past few months. All in all a great event and I can’t wait to have the next one soon.

Thanks to @409now, @beaumartian, @beaumontbeth, @cookingoutloud, @curatorgirl, @irishplague, @jess_benton, @laurawxx @mccjustin @mickster09 @reneeintx , chad and steve.
