What happens at a typical blogger meet or tweetup comic

A new comic after 2 months, and that too with a wall of text (in comic font) you might say? I’m sorry, but had been busy all this while vacationing, then officing, then gaming, and twittering all this while.

Thanks to everyone who mailed, twittered, SMSed and commented to ask if I was dead, and why no comics?

    Haha! Awesome. The ‘sausage fest’ is a total game changer!
    Sooner or later, Facebook and Twitter will become like Orkut. The only solution would be population control, and that is NOT going to happen in our country.

    .. and he’s back. Really glad you found your missing funny-bone.

    p.s: also following me back would make praising you really easy.

    Thanks everyone… I’m away from the computer today, but seems nobody minds the two month gap :)

    those who’ve never been to a tweetup.. It’s not as bad as this. You meet interesting people, although once you’re done with complaining about the quiz spam on facebook, and the wreck orkut has begun… You kind of run out of topics..

    So which one are you? :)

    Loved it. Which category do you fall in?

  21. 21
    Saad Akhtar (Author) // November 3rd, 2009 at 1:18 am

    Since everyone is asking…I fall under the category of the silent types. Not that I hate tweetups or bloggers meets.. You meet interesting people there, who love the Internet and hate tv.

    Just that once in a while the conVersation gets hijacked by “evangelists”

    Ram // November 3rd, 2009 at 1:21 am

    I almost fell off my chair! I just pictured these guys ‘evangelizing’ the others to hit the 50,000 followers mark.

    Xacarob // November 3rd, 2009 at 6:04 am

    But if it’s a tweetup, how can anyone say anything more than 140 characters long?

    Still funny though.

    I always wondered what would happen if one of those orkut ‘fraand’ types went to a real life thing. Must be pretty creepy.

    Good one.

    Also, what happened to the guest comic thing?

    I think you left out a whole lot of other stereotypes. Out of political correctness? :) Awesome comic.

    Mittal Patel // December 8th, 2009 at 11:28 am

    Though I think you should have made it little longer to cover up more personalities ;)

  35. 35
    Saad Akhtar (Author) // December 8th, 2009 at 11:41 am

    @mittal: Yeah, there are a few more personalities. But had to get this comic out fast. Had been missing for a month or so. :)

    Maybe you could make changes to the post name title What happens at a typical bloggers’ meet or tweetup | Indian comics about life and irritations. to something more better for your content you create. I enjoyed the the writing nevertheless.
