Twitter search, Hi Victoria!
Tonight I found out you can now search for people on Twitter by name, location, possibly more. I did a search for Victoria, and found a lot of really interesting people! And, unfortunately I found out a few days late that there was a BarCamp DemoCamp in Victoria on the 3rd.
I've followed a bunch of new people on Twitter whose blogs or tweets I found interesting. I also found out about TwitterLocal... this would have been an easier way than Twitter's search, oh well. :-)
