Once I mastered the Twitter basics, I set up TweetBeep (kinda like Google alerts) to email me when someone wrote a tweet on something that interested me. For example, any time a tweet included the word "Plymouth". Do you know how many cities are named Plymouth in the world? Lots.
Next, I noticed people talking about "tweet-ups". I had no idea what they meant, but had a hunch it might have something to do with getting together.
As luck would have it, one of our local agents organized one last week and five people showed up. We met at a pub, enjoyed food & drinks, and shared real estate war stories and tech tips.
It was great to be in the company of others who "get" and embrace the same technology instead of looking at you like you're nuts.
Next, a little Twitter synchronicity.
