About CTUB

25 July, 2010

I sent out a general information email to the CTUB mailing list this morning – thought it might be of interest to non-subscribers too:

There are now ninety people who subscribe to the CTUB mailing list and I thought it was about time I just sent out a general information email about the Canberra Twitter user group and meetups.

The CTUB group was formed towards the end of 2007 as part of a national initiative to create communities of Twitter users in capital cities – for example there’s STUB in Sydney, MTUB in Melbourne, PTUB in Perth and so on.

The main purpose of CTUB is to hold events where people who mainly converse online via any sort of microblogging platform such as Twitter, Plurk, Foursquare etc can come together to meet in real life in a friendly community environment at a local cafe or pub for a drink and a chat.

We have held around 40 CTUB events since our first one in 2007 with guest appearances from interstate tweeps from Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Cairns, Adelaide and Perth.

It would be great to see more of you at our events so if you have any feedback on how we can encourage you to come then please let me know.

Please note this is an open mailing list in that any of you can email ctub@mailmanlist.net to message the whole group so feel free to organise a CTUB yourself – I’m not the sole coordinator, I just happen to run most of the events. Just make sure you keep mailing list traffic low.

We also sometimes use Eventbrite to collect RSVPs for CTUB events. Sometimes like the last one it’s just an open call for anyone who wants to turn up because we rarely get more than ten people to an event.

Thank you all for your interest in CTUB and those of you who have attended and supported previous CTUB events.

If you have any questions please let me know.

If you live in or near Canberra and want to be a part of CTUB then follow us on Twitter and join the mailing list.
