WLS Twibe

So some of you know (Hi tweeps) we have a Weight Loss Surgery Twibe. All surgery types, all stages, pre-ops, post-ops, & everyone in between.

A Twibe is basically a place where people with common interests (who are using Twitter) can find each other. Explained in depth here. Twitter is a cool, fun social networking medium (think Facebook-ish but waaaay better) but unless you combine it with Twibes it's just you talking to cyber space. A Twibe is like a cyber party of your similar interest pals, a place to meet up and learn about each other. There are Twibes for everything you can imagine... check it out.

The creator of Twibes, Adam Loving (@twibes) did a phone interview with me the other day. He's super cool and what he's created is really awesome. Here's the interview...

Michelle Vicari (@eggface) is the founder of the Weight Loss Surgery Twitter group and blogs delicious recipes at The World According to Eggface. Through sharing her story and passion, she’s grown a fantastic Twibe, it has increased by 30 members just in the week since we spoke.
