The London book trade tweeted up again last night, at #twinter – a successor to #tweetmas, both organized by @benjohncock and @samatlounge of @thebookseller. Social media socialites from across the publishing industry were drawn to Belsize Park’s XO for gossip, drinks and networking. Once again, @missdaisyfrost was in attendance, but as undercover as ever. More and more of the assembled authors, publishers, agents, publicists, journalists, bloggers and other industry folk struck the pose and claimed to be Daisy Frost as the night wore on, culminating in this Spartacus moment. See more of Toby Rhind-Tutt’s (@the_rts) excellent photos of the event on TwitPic or his website.
We can now also reveal that the date of the London Book Fair tweetup, organised by Publishing Talk, has now been confirmed for Tuesday 20th April 2010. It will start in one of the bars inside the Earls Court venue, from 5.30-6.30. We’ll then move on to a local pub. Hashtag and Twtvite to follow. Watch this space for more details, and hope you can join us – either in real life, or vicariously via the hashtag on Twitter.
Meanwhile, if you have an event with a publishing focus you want to publicise (not necessarily in London or the UK!), let us know and we’ll add it to our new Events page.
