Local Tweeps

I came across this site today, courtesy of a RT by @sarabozich:

http://nearbytweets.com/

It’s an automatic Tweep aggregator (that’s right; it’s a Tweep aggregator, not a Tweet aggregator).  It locates Twitter users near you.  It uses a combination of Twitter and Google APIs to geographically assess your IP, translate it to a physical location, and correlate that with the location of other users nearby.  It’s pretty slick, and what with all the talk about maintaining a list of Central PA Tweeps (often coupled with talk about how we’re all too lazy to do it ourselves), pretty convenient.

Enjoy.

Last Thursday’s Central PA Tweetup

GREAT times at this past week’s tweetup!  Thanks to everyone — whether you tweeted about it, blogged about it, offered words of support, or just plain showed up — who made it happen.  I noticed a LOT of new faces (yay) and a few missing regulars (boo), but it seems like everyone in attendance had a great time.  If you’ve never been to one, our Central PA tweetups (which, by definition, includes all of the contributors to blogHarrisburg) take place on the third Thursday of every month, from 7-9pm, in The Abbey Bar at ABC Harrisburg.
