The San Diego Tweetup’s February gathering set new attendance records last Saturday, as more than 200 Twitter aficionados converged on the Wine Cabana in Old Town. This was a significant jump over the first SD Tweetup, held in April 2008, when only about 30 attended.

The event, which is usually held monthly, had been sorely missed since its last large gathering in November at KPBS Studios. (No complaints here about the December SD Tweetup, as 25 of us were included in the audience of The Price is Right, and yours truly won a treadmill and $1000.) This time, there was no attendee cap – and tweeters from all over San Diego County turned out in force. We drank wine, played Rockband (courtesy of assistant organizer @DowntownRob), and tweeted the #sdtweetup hashtag all the way up to the #2 trending topic on Twitter for several hours.

Organizer Jenn Van Grove (@jbruin) did another bang-up job in finding a venue large enough for such a group, and sponsors willing to fund the good times. Much love to Network Velocity (@nvelocity) for sponsorship. See Jenn’s blog post for a comprehensive Twitter roll of attendees, as well as links to several Flickr sets of event photos.

    You know I kinda miss tweetup on the week days because then people don’t leave early to go to other parties.

    It’s so hard to give face time to my twitter list when we usually only connect physically during tweetups =(.

    BTW Twineup is the 14th I believe.
