Chrystie and Kristi at the Maine Tweetup!

Did you miss the Maine TweetUp? Well, here’s a taste of some the conversations we had tonight.

Tonight was the monthly Maine TweetUp in Portland Maine, and I thought it would be fun to talk to a few folks and make a podcast out of it. So I did! I spoke with people I just met, like Kristi Trimmer (@dragonflytweet), and some I’ve known for several years, like Chrystie Vachon (@ilovetogossip/@ccMaine) and GriffinClubMerv (@GriffinClubMerv). To keep things simple, I asked everyone the same 5 questions. To top it off, I asked Greg Daly how we should make the world a better place, and he gave us a call to action.

Alexandra Munier

Alexandra Munier is kind of all over the place. She is a marketing operations coordinator by day, and spends her evenings dancing burlesque (as Candy Sprinkles) and writing for her sorta popular blog Broke207 (or it would be if she would ever update it). Sometimes she reads stories at local bars or hosts city wide clothing swaps, and one time she convinced some folks that she was a social media expert. Oh, and there was that other time she took a bunch of people to IKEA on a charter bus for funzos.

She also writes about being thrifty for Goodwill of Northern New England and whatever other blog or publication is willing to retain her services by asking nicely.
