Tour Twitter LA’s Very First Meetup! #TwitterDrive

On Thursday January 22, Twitter kicked off its #TwitterDrive developers’ meetup bus tour with a stop at Twitter’s new offices in Santa Monica.

The tour is scheduled to promote Fabric, which includes kits to help mobile developers make their apps more robust using Twitter / Digits login, Crashalytics, and their mobile ad platform MoPub.


Attendees were treated to a ton of food and a few promo items as the capacity crowd spread out amongst the 8,0000 square foot public-facing area, which included two conference rooms, a full kitchen, the lobby, a presentation space and a few loft-area cubbyholes.

    What do you study? silagra 25 Mayer has criticized the partnership in the past. “We need to see monetization working better because we know that it can and we’ve seen other competitors in the space illustrate how well it can work,” Mayer said at an investor conference in February.

    Well said as always Melinda. As you know we have been growing our own food and eating locally for nearly two years now. Our local farmers market and the farmers who share their crops there have been our most valuable resource for learning about how to eat and produce local foods. Not only have they supplied us with food to supplement our own garden, but they have been more than willing to talk to us at length and teach us about what grows best and when in our local environment.
