Gambit is cosponsoring "Twitter 101" day with our friends at Naked Pizza -- a quick two-hour seminar to show the practical (and fun) side of the social-messaging service. It's free, there'll be free pizza and refreshments, and part of the session will be presented by the Louisiana Office of Emergency Preparedness, showing everyone how useful Twitter can be in the case of something like a hurricane evacuation. Bring a laptop or smartphone if you like; they're not required.
It should be an interesting and educational time, whether you know jacksquat about Twitter or whether you're an old Twitter hand. Here's the 411 from Naked Pizza:
