St. Louis Twitter Users is Shutting Down

Share on Nextdoor
Andrew Bell sent out a message to the members of his St. Louis Twitter Group, STL Tweeters on Ning saying that he didn't have to keep the group going. And indeed, with the exception of a few spammers, the site has been basically dormant since last spring. 

Andrews message:

A message to all members of St. Louis Twitter Users

First and foremost, THANK YOU for all that helped get the word out about this site, helped make graphics, provide content and show up for some pretty awesome tweetups! It was a blast, and I enjoyed it.

I'm thinking about closing up shop here. Given the traffic (and the content of the traffic that we do have) and also the lack of time, energy and lack of interest on my own part I decided that you probably don't want your email inbox subject to any more abuse.

If anyone is interested in taking full control, I'll be glad to help transfer the site over, or whatever else need be, but if not, I will be shutting down the site sometime next week.

I do highly recommend Greg Bussmann's site for all your tweetup (and other social media needs). All of the features that we utilized here, are available there, but has a much better upkeep.

Again, thank you for all your help and support, you can always contact me at [email protected] and

It seems that with the right stewardship the 300+ member Ning group could become a good hub for St. Louis twitterers outside of Twitter. It's a great place to go and find the most recent local tweetups etc. -- if someone is willing to promote it, keep the spammers out and keep it active.

There is another group like the active Social Media Club of St. Louis, but there could be room for a group that's more focused on Twitter specifically. So if you're interested in taking this on, don't let the opportunity pass. Contact Andrew a.s.a.p.
