Social Media

It was a Sizzling Miami Tweetup by JD Andrews

 It was a perfect Miami night for the #SizzlingMiamiTweetUp at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel.

Beautiful Miami (taken with iPhone4)

I always say, "The best part of Social media is meeting the people you tweet with everyday IRL (In Real Life)"

And tonight was extra special for me - Meeting Sean (@2morrowknight) and Ann (@AnnTran_) after so many years of on-line conversations!

Lots of great people were there, including:
