The Jolly Sailor, Orford for A Jolly Tweet-Up
The Jolly Sailor was one of the several Suffolk Tweeps (see below) that I approached for donations to the Bury St Edmunds Twestival the other night and Gordon Williams, the relatively new Landlord, kindly donated a whopping great £100 voucher for meals and accommodation adding “I don’t care if they use the whole thing for a massive piss-up”
Gordon isn’t (YET) on twitter although he’s open to the idea of tweeting. He should follow the excellent example set by Carl Bennett (@solebaycheeseco) who tweets in his cheese stall at the Jolly Sailor on Sundays (He’s opening a more permanent shop at the Jolly Sailor and building work is commencing soon which is fantastic news)
I’ve been asked by a handful of Suffolk based people to run them through twitter, “..cause they don’t get it’. So I thought I’d ask for a little help from the tweeps around Suffolk…
Gordon has kindly given us a room in the Jolly Sailor this Wednesday and has told us the first drink is on him! I’ll make sure that we have wifi sorted. Apart from it being “a Jolly” we need to accomplish two things: 1) Help those with questions and contribute to an informal presentation on how to get tweeting 2) Ensure Gordon closes the pub tweeting.
Please leave a comment below if you plan to come so we know who to expect or if you’re on twitter let me know if that’s easier.
Let’s meet from 7pm on Wednesday 31st March 2010 and if you don’t know where the Jolly Sailor is you should be ashamed. You can find it close to the Quay in Orford.
And for those new to all of this: “Tweet-Up” is obviously a play on meet-up, and tweeps are twitter people (some people call them twits)
So far expect to see:
