I asked about the upcoming tweet-ups in a city, only to be told they didn't really have any tweet-ups now. There are plenty of social get-togethers organized on Twitter, by different groups of people. If you know those people online, you're welcome to come.
Where's the chance to get to know new people? How does a new person even find out about these things without knowing the "in crowd"?
Where's the big, open, welcoming event, designed to cut across those boundaries of class, social strata, and geography?
If you are using Twitter to communicate only with certain "in real life" social circles, you are missing out on something that has been a miracle in my life: the ability to connect across social and geographic boundaries.
