Events ~ A Night in Newport Tweet-Up

Hotel Viking
1 Bellevue Ave.
Newport, Rhode Island


Last night I attended my first Tweet-Up, a meeting of people active in social media. It was hosted by the Hotel Viking in Newport (they get a separate post). The event was coordinated by Jim and Stacy Reck, and attended by about twenty social networkers from Rhode Island and Southern New England.

Everyone had a great time, and circulated very well. It's important to note that, while some of the attendees already knew each other and/or had met before, I never felt like an outsider, and it didn't seem like anyone else did, either.

Here are a couple of shots of the attendees - a great mix of people from all walks.

The Hotel Viking's staff was great, the food was good and the atmosphere was high-energy and good-natured. I learned a lot and met some people who are more than good contacts, people I enjoyed spending my time with and would love to see again. It was more than worth the drive in the rain.
