A HOST of local businesses and web-savvy residents gathered at the Winter Garden for a town-wide Tweet-up.
More than 40 regular users of the popular social networking website Twitter headed to the town centre venue for the event, which was organised by tourism website www.visiteastbourne.co.uk and the Eastbourne Conference Bureau.
The free drop-in session took place at the Congress Suite and offered local tweeters the chance to put faces to the people behind the tweets from the town’s growing twitter community.
Councillor Neil Stanley, said, “We were delighted to host our first tweetup and very pleased with the number of people who attended.
“Not only did we have local businesses but we also had individuals come along too, including a couple of tweeters who have just moved to Eastbourne.
“The feedback we’ve received has been excellent and we’re looking forward to organising another tweetup in the New Year.”
