First Riyadh Tweet-up a Success

The first Riyadh tweet-up held in May (a physical meeting up of Riyadh residents who use Twitter) was a success. Organized by @Saudi, some 20+ men and 2 women showed up at Second Cup on Tahlia; the men sat in the singles section and the women in the family section- perfectly segregated as per local law!

Go communication was also present and offered coupons to the male attendees for WiMax connections (their female representative did not show up and thus there was no one available to join the women). What was disappointing however was that of the ~8 women tweeps who signed up, only 2 showed up (both expats). Perhaps it will be better next time?

An incomplete list of the tweeps that attended are:

Kudos to @Saudi for organizing the event and even providing name tags for all!

The Second Riyadh Tweet-up is scheduled for June 3, 2009. Click here for registration.
