This month marks my 10th Twitter anniversary for @SevillaTapas, though I actually first joined in March 2007 as @azahar, to accompany this blog. I’ve had a couple other accounts over the years but those two remain my main ones, along with my sister food tour company @welovetapastour, started in November 2014.
Out of all the social media platforms Twitter has been the one that has brought the most people into my life, and it has also been a constant source of entertainment and information. I never understand people who complain about Twitter, since it’s entirely up to us who we follow. When did you first join?
I first met Caroline & Steve when I was in San Sebastian. We had been Twitter friends for ages, so it was great to finally meet up in person. Then I found out they were coming to Sevilla with their friends Chris & Louisa, so we met up this weekend for a quick tapeo. Because OF COURSE they had to try the pringá at Bodeguita Romero. Hoping they will be back soon.
Twitter strikes again! Claudia @clauciagcbell and I have been following each other on both Twitter and Instagram for AGES (neither of us can remember how long) and we finally got to meet up this weekend. In fact, they have been in town for the past couple of weeks, but “this and that” kept getting in the way. And so we met up to do some Tapas Research together at a restaurant in Triana I had never been to before.
It was a great afternoon and felt like being out with old friends. More Tapas Research and other visits are planned for the rest of their stay here. And with a bit of luck they will also become my new neighbours. 🙂
