Third Tuesday – This month with Shel Israel! (Sept 17)
Vancouver is a hub of social and techie events!
This month’s Third Tuesday is a really exciting one. In fact, it’s so exciting, it’ll take place on a Thursday. Yeah.
Now Shel Israel is back with Twitterville, his look at Twitter and how it is being used by people and organizations to connect, play, share, create community, organize… You name it and we’re finding a way to do it on Twitter. // This event shouldn’t be missed! Shel will spark your imagination, and give you ideas about how you can use Twitter and other social media in your business and life.”
