You only have to wrap one gift. Imagine how many hours it took to wrap all the items in the video. Enjoy!

If you came out this past Sunday to our first Tweet ‘n Greet at Aice Fazooli’s, you’ll know it was a fantastic evening. As tweeps started showing up, they sauntered over to a table and wrote their Twitter username on a name tag and donned the accessory all night! It was super awesome meeting everyone in person, especially since some were completely different than they looked in their avatars.

There was plenty of awesome feedback and we were pleased with how this event turned out (after all, it was our first one). We definitely plan on doing something like this in the near future and hope (if you were there) you’ll tell your friends and bring them along next time. We look forward to building on the connections. Please feel free to comment. We love the feedback.

“Thank You” for attending our first TweetnGreet Event on Sunday July 12, 2009. This was the 1st event we collectively organized. We encourage your feedback and suggestions to better shape our future events. Your input and ideas are important to us. Please fill the survey below:

Here are some Networking tips for you to read!

12 Dos And Don’ts Of Successful Networking (
Networking is easy and fun! Just bear in mind the following tips to make the most of your networking sessions:


DO Adopt The Right Attitude About Networking
It is about meeting people and finding out how you can help them or they can help you. It is NOT just about how you alone can benefit.

DO Your Homework
Prepare ahead by asking yourself: who do you want to meet and what you would like to achieve from the networking event?

DO Listen And Learn
Many people love to talk about what they do, so take the opportunity to listen and learn. You might just find out how you can work together with them.

DO Think Before You Speak
Present your thoughts and ideas clearly.

DO Follow Up
Make the effort to follow up promptly after meeting the person you want to get to know. Drop him a note or an email within the same day, if possible, to make a first impression that lasts.

DO Show Gratitude
Thank the person who gave you a referral. A little gesture goes a long way.

DON’T Choose A Networking Group By Its Size
It is not the quantity, but the quality of contacts that the group can offer you.

DON’T Dish Out Your Business Card To People Before A Conversation Occurs
Get to know them first, and vice versa, before giving them your card.

DON’T Offer Unsolicited Opinions
Before you know the other party’s opinions, stay within neutral territory with yours, so as not to put yourself in a potentially awkward situation.

DON’T Be Shy
Don’t turn aside compliments – that insults the giver. Acknowledge the person by saying “Thank you”.

DON’T Expect Instant Results From Your Contacts
Be patient. It usually takes a while before people are comfortable enough to offer you a referral.

DON’T Ask For More Than What People Can Give
People generally avoid takers.
