Pune Twitter Meetup – Largest in India so far…

@bhavis is now my pet name… and thanks to Twitter.

I was following many never-met followers. Always wanted to meet-up with them and know them in person. So at WAT Blog Purva, Rohan, Navin and Dhananjay along with me planed to have Pune Twitter Meetup. This would be a social gathering of twitters, out of the web world to an air breathing environment.

I always believe in doing things differently; so decided to make it big and get media attention. FAQ to me on this event:
Q Why do u wanted media to cover this event?
Ans: So that many people who are unaware of this communication tool, join it and make it a best place.
Q Why aiming to make it the Largest Twitter Meetup in India?

Ans: Punekars do not believe in doing small things, we rock and we wanted to prove it this time too.

The Event took place at CCD, FC Road on 7th Feb at 7pm. CCD guys were ready with seating arrangement of 45 people and for everyones surprise 60+ twitters turned up.

The meet witnessed great talks and discussion on:
1. Why and how to use twitter
2. Does and don’ts at twitter
3. Twitter – a Business development tool
4. Exchanging knowledge, updates, ideas and opinions in twitter
5. Green Pune and All information about pune through twitter
6. What if twitter charges for usage?
7. Romance and meeting soulmates via Twitter

We had a good encouragement from Media and thanks to Pune Mirror, DNA and Indian Express.

Coverage by Pune Mirror 8th Feb 2 pg Edition
Coverage by DNA 9th Feb 5 pg Edition

Coverage by Indian Express - Pune Newsline 10th Feb 8 pg

We dreamt…We thought ….and We worked …

“We all Pune Twitter's are winners as we did what we aimed for” Cheers!
Twitter Rocks so do Pune Twitters.

"Romance and solemates.." :D :D soulmates i should think. solemates would be people with the same shoe size :D

Bhavya said...

@Vedang: Thanks for noticing… I have actually invented a new word :D
But that could be given a thought, seems difficult but we may have solemates turning out to be soulmates :)

This is so good. I'm not that frequent at Twitter Meetups (aren't they also called Tweetups), but love to, if we discuss as many things. We had a small Twestival, and it was heartening to see people turning up to say.."I read it in the papers and came for it!" :)

Bhavya said...

@Arcopol: I too read about Mumbai Tweetup in the newspaper. Gr8 work.
The only intention about getting the tweetup in the media, was to make plp aware about Twitter and its utilities.

You may probably be very curious to know how one can make real money on investments.
There is no need to invest much at first.
You may begin earning with a money that usually goes
on daily food, that's 20-100 dollars.
I have been participating in one project for several years,
and I'll be glad to share my secrets at my blog.

P.S. I earn 1000-2000 per day now.

Hi there!
I would like to burn a theme at here. There is such a thing, called HYIP, or High Yield Investment Program. It reminds of financial piramyde, but in rare cases one may happen to meet a company that really pays up to 2% daily not on invested money, but from real profits.

For several years , I earn money with the help of these programs.
I don't have problems with money now, but there are heights that must be conquered . I make 2G daily, and I started with funny 500 bucks.
Right now, I'm very close at catching at last a guaranteed variant to make a sharp rise . Turn to my blog to get additional info. [url=]Online Investment Blog[/url]
