Over on my personal blog I wrote a recap in Danish of the first Twitter Meetup in Sonderborg.
Under the tag #6400tweetup a conversation had been going on twitter about meeting up and putting faces to the local twitter users.
The meeting was a Thursday two weeks ago at Cafe Ib Rehne Cairo in Sonderborg and there were nine people who had signed up. We met at 18.30 had a drink and ate delicious burgers. The conversations were interesting as they always are when you have “known” people online and finally get to meet them in real life.
A great evening with a great bunch of people from all over the area.
Want to join next time?
Ann and I are tweeting as @hejsonderborg – do say hi if you are on Twitter.

A “Friday Bar” for people on Twitter? Twitter is still a bit of a niche media in Denmark and although there is a small amount of local tweeps, not that many of them have actually met. So this would be an idea to see people face to face that you might just know as a username.
“A tweetup is an event where people who Twitter come together to meet in person. Normally we connect with our friends online after we have met them. At a tweetup you meet the people you might only otherwise know virtually. Like finally putting a name to a face, a tweetup is a great opportunity to really connect with the people in your network and share just a little more than 140 characters at a time.” — Cary Snowden
When we were living in London I used to attend the local #WhampGather and it was always a lot of fun, meeting a lot of good people there.
