At least twenty-five Paris tweeps met at Café Livre on rue Saint-Martin to communicate in the old-fashioned way—by chatting face-to-face! Yes folks, even the most advanced form of high-speed, electronic communication known to mankind—Twitter—has not (yet) squelched the desire for humans to get together around a table and shoot the breeze.
So large was the group that it was forced to split into two parts, with sub-groups sitting on either side of the café. Even so, movement of individuals across the café from one group to another could be detected!
The café is a handsome place with wooden floors, a bar with a metal counter top, and walls lined with shelves filled with dozens of books. Hence its name Café Livre. But nobody was reading tonight; people were too busy in happy conversation!
There were new faces there amongst the familiar, but rather that trying to sort it all out, here is a list of their names, Twitter identities, and blogs:
