Brisbane Meetups: Are you new to Twitter in Brisbane? Come and meet lots of people on Friday!

So, if you've just joined Twitter you may be be wondering exactly what all the fuss is about. People use Twitter in lots of different ways, but the main way I use it is to meet other people in Brisbane. Brisbane has a thriving community on Twitter, and once a month there's a big meet-up called a btub.

The next btub is tomorrow night, Friday May 1st, at the Ship Inn, Southbank (the Ship Inn is at the south end of Southbank, near South Bank train and bus stations - click here for a Google Map). It kicks off at 6pm and will be going till late. We're on the second level - go through the beer garden, and you'll see glass sliding doors to the Griffith Graduate Centre. You'll see a sign pointing to the stairs - just go up, and you'll find us.

btub stands for "Brisbane Twitter Underground Brigade" but it's not really underground any more, we have lots of people turn up. There's lots of interesting and friendly people to chat to so if you're free, drop in - if you want to chat with me, my photo's on the side of this blog (but I now have longer hair and a goatee/mo). I'll be late (about 9pm) because I don't finish work till 8pm.

There's a btub group on Facebook, and there's a Facebook event for tomorrow night's meetup. And you can also follow btub's Twitter account.

If you're on Twitter, a service that lets you find out what people are doing, you might want to follow the Brisbane Blog's Twitter account and you'll get updated every time there is a new story on the Brisbane Blog. Or if you want more, follow my personal account (David Jackmanson) and find out what I'm up to.
