The library will also receive three years of support, including three years of training for the librarians. …

As You Wish at an Austin Tweetup

If you aren’t on Twitter, then you weren’t following Obama’s path to the presidency and haven’t been watching enough Oprah. Twitter answers the question, “What are you doing right now?” and allows people to share the little moments that make up who they are.

When Twitter users get together, it’s called a Tweetup!

As You Wish (@asyouwish ) plans to be at the next on sponsored by the Austin American-Statesman:

Statesman Tweetup
When: Thursday, May 14th at 6pm
Where : Opal Divine’s North location (near Fry’s)
Host: @statesman

I’ll be sure to look the part of a professional photographer.
