So this friday I will be meeting up with twitter users in Lima, Peru for BeerTwit. The concept of meeting up with virtual friends in real life is one that intrigues me, and I see it gaining lots and lots of steam in the near future. Its really amazed me that users are finding each other and connecting across disparate regions of the world and using the social bond that twitter provides them to connect in real life.

Apparently this trend is happening all around the world according to my friend Diego. Twitter meetups are sprouting up everywhere from Madrid, Mexico, Sevilla, Barcelona, Argentina, and tons of other places. Those are just the spanish speaking places too!

There is even a Tokyo twitter group! 2 seconds of quick searching also revealed meetups in Los Angeles, Indianapolis, Huntsville, Buffalo,  and Venice, Italy!

So if you know of a tweetup occuring, post them in the comments.

  1. Now I remember you writing previously that you wouldn’t accept a Facebook friend request if you hadn’t met them in person (or had extensive dealings with them online).

    And now you refuse to believe that the people on Twitter exist without meeting them in the flesh.

    Can’t you just hide yourself away like the rest of us, taking the virtual world as fact and the real world as a primitive substitute…?!

  3. Hope to see you there! We’ve been having BeerTwits weekly for a month now, but this is the first time we are trying to make it big…

    We’ll see how it goes…
