Back in the day, Twitter followers wanted to meet, so they would arrange a time to meet in the “real world”. This allows a real conversation with out the awkward face to face conversations.
I thought these were cool… but I knew there was more. The internest is neverending. So, of course, I went to Google! Found this site called www.mashable.com/socialmedia. And one of the many amazing articles is “10 Ways to Find People on Twitter”. Without giving all the goods away, I can tell you that I listed numbers 5,6, 8, and the bonus site they had listed. So the book did a good job.
Check them out. You don’t have to spend hours gazing at everything, but do have a quick look-see and gawk at the “kewl”(that was for Miranda) articles and pieces of information these sites kick out.
