I am a great fan of Twitter, but with so much information and people, it’s easy to spend most of your time tweeting without really “talking” to anyone. The solution?  Tweetups: an organized focused session on a particular gardening/landscaping topic.  It’s the best filter for finding excellent garden-related information.
