Update on the STL Twitter Situation

Last week, our very own media queen, LC, asked about a Twitter meet up or Tweet-up in STL. Turns out she wasn't the only one asking questions.

Twitter, the micro blogging platform that keeps expanding and morphing, has spawned all sorts of events such as Tweet-ups, in which Twitter-ers can meet in person and discuss social media, networking, and of course, Twitter.

What we learned after a bit of research is that St. Louis, while having a small Twitter user base, also has a very active base that is already looking to get things together.

In fact, there is an entire Ning (social network) based around St. Louis Twitter users. Not only that, The St. Lou Jew took it upon ourselves to start a discussion about a Twitter Festival, aka a TweSTivaL. This idea is to organize for a cause and give people the opportunity to give back while forming new connections.

The planning is in early stages and anyone can be involved (which is the point).

You can check that discussion here and if you are on Twitter, be sure to follow @thestloujew!
