Tweetups are simply an in-person meet up of Twitter users in a given geographic area.  They are an inclusive way of turning virtual relationships that started on Twitter in to the actual, face-to-face, let’s-take-this-relationship-to-the-next-level, kind, which is what we look to Social Media …

A few times a week, I send out short marketing words of wisdom on LinkedIn, Facebook and Twitter called Myrland Marketing Moments.  They are always fewer than 120 characters as I want to leave room for those kind enough to share, or ReTweet, them on Twitter.  Twitter only allows us 140 characters, so leaving space for others to add their …
