One of the great things about advances in social media networking is that it’s become incredibly easy to locate like-minded individuals on any topic you can think of—including, of course, people who love wine. Twitter, with its real-time interface and “hashtag” grouping system, is one such ideal networking environment for wine enthusiasts—at least, those who don’t mind sharing their thoughts at 140 characters per “tweet.”
WineTwits uses Twitter as a platform to create a centralized forum for its users, allowing them to converse at will on any number of topics. If you’re on Twitter already, follow @WineTwits to learn more about what discussions are currently happening. If you haven’t tried Twitter because you’re a little intimidated by the onslaught of conversation, this might be a good place to ease yourself in…surrounded by people who have the exact same passion for wine as you.
WineTwits also has its own “deal” site for users at WineTwits Deals. Instead of being a “daily” deal, however, WineTwits offers one bottle of wine at a 30-80% markdown rate until that wine is sold out…and then they put another one up on the sale block (no more than six per day, though, so pace yourself!).
Great conversation and good deals on wine—isn’t that part of why you enjoy wine in the first place?
