Tidbits from Twitter

I get to meet interesting people -electronically most of the time- on twitter! I get information and news updates as well! I love it so much that I have decided to share some tidbits of it on my blog every now on then with mention-shoutouts for my sources…

Kuwait’s Social Media Forum – Take II

Zain invited me to attend their second Social Media Event, which took place in GUST last night.

I got their at 5:15PM – which is 15 minutes late than their scheduled time… but due to unavoidable circumstances they did not start till after 6:30PM!

I realized half way through that I forgot my good camera AGAIN! 😦 But I always carry a small one in my bag, so… something is better than nothing!!!

Anyways… The event is organized by both; Zain & Al Hareer.

They started with handing our certificates to the attendees of the first forum, including me, then they broke for prayers… afterwards, Mr. Abdullah AlSaif of AlHareer Business Center gave an introductory speech to the audience.

The event was planned to host a discussion panel by three blogs in Kuwait… to share their blogging and tweeting experiences with the audience!

The starts of the night; @P0ach (blog), @MubarakEsmail (blog), and @his_hers_q8 (blog)… with @DrAlZamel (blog) who was the moderator of the discussion panel!

It was a fun and light event… with lots of examples given by the guests… and some interactions with the audience too. They also talked about how blogs turned into business and how it works, with all of the good, the bad, and the ugly! They also got into discussing FourSquare and how to turn that into a business and marketing tool… giving two thumbs up to NBK‘s move, as a first entrant to use it in our market 😉

P0ach surprised me.. or wanted to have some actions to be exact and asked the microphone guy to approach me explaining “Ansam has a question!”


My reaction? Well… I held the mike, I laughed a bit and was like “Abdullah, I do not have a question!” – It was a funny moment and P0ach is such a sweetheart!

The last speech was given by Mr. Mohammed AlMuhaini, one of Zain’s Social Media team. Very informative 😉

P0ach! You are an inspiration to many and one of my best bloggersphere buddies 😀 😀 😀 You are full of energy and smile *mashallah* Thanks for the shout-out LOL

HiKuwait, it was nice to see you again tonight 🙂

His&Hers! What can I say!? Love your blog and I read it on daily basis!

Dr.AlZamel… You did a great job moderating the discussion, and I hold a great amount of respect to you… Thanks again – I am very grateful for your help last week 🙂

AlHareer, thanks for being part of the event. We want to see more of those forums… I know I nagged about the time in the beginning of this post, but nevertheless it was great

Mohammed AlMuhaini (and the whole Zain Social Media Team) Thank you for always remembering me and making me part of your social media events! I really appreciate it 😀

In the end, they handed certificates to the participants and asked us all for a group picture 😀

Oh and it was good seeing you Mr. Omar!!!

New Twitter…. Disabled?

Late last night Twitter went back to the old look! I was puzzled! I thought I clicked on something by mistake and I tried to fix it… then @Buzberry told me that they disabled new Twitter because they accidentally found out that you can view someone else’s time line – according to TechCrunch!

I checked #NewTwitter

But it looks like it got fix! They’ve turned New Twitter back on! Whew! I dont wanna go back to retro Twitter LOL!

Sara <3 Ansam Yogurt

One of my Twitter buddies sent me pictures of his cutie pie daughter, Sara, eating Ansam Yogurt! I thought they were just TOO CUTE to keep’em for myself and wanted to share it with you all 😉

AlMohaisen Bakery

Ever since Danderma tweeted me with a question asking for cheese pie, I wanted to have one… She wanted one  just like the good old pies we had in school, I quickly answered her… AlMohaisen! She totally agreed. So I headed to AlMohaisen in AlQadsiya Coop

I got a couple of cheese and a couple of zaatar (100 fils each).

Its one of those pies where you bite in looking for cheese that you wont get to till the 4th or 5th bite

I was one of those lucky followers today and got so much ice cream that it didnt just make me happy, but everyone on my floor at work… it was such a mood switch and mood boost for all of us! As if they knew I love ice cream SO SO MUCH (link)

Thank you Taw9eel ❤ ❤ ❤
