Video: TweetMeet in Västerås, Sweden

BlkChickOnTour:  Hello Twitterverse!! Finally I’m settled in @visit_stockholm (Stockholm). Day tripping to Västerås tomorrow. #travel #havingfun!!  10 Jul

RunawayBrit:  @BlkChickOnTour Hey really? I live in Västerås, if you want to meet for Fika (swedish coffee and cake break!!) 10 Jul 

And that’s how it started.  I was in Vasteras and had my first TweetMeet.  What’s a TweetMeet?  Basically, it’s when people who have been interacting on Twiiter decide to meet up in person.

By chance I happened to have found myself going to Västerås for a music video shoot at Karlsgatan 2.  When Elaine (RunawayBrit) reached out to meet up, I was both surprised and excited.  Wasn’t sure if I was going to “do it,”  I’m feel a little shy about meeting strangers, which is why I talk too much.  LOL.  Anyway, I’m glad I did.  Elaine is a wonderful person, I’m glad I took the time to meet her.  Now, when I see her on Twitter, for some reason I feel like it’s more personal.

Anyway…following is a short video from what turned out to be a 2-hr TweetMeet.

Enjoy!!
