I think it’s safe to say a good time was had by all at last night’s 2nd #LRTweetup at the Capital Bar & Grill in downtown Little Rock. I think our group was at least as big — if not a little bigger — than at the first event, and there again seemed to be a variety of professions and businesses represented, making it a choice networking event for all in attendance.

Special thanks to KATV for shooting some video of the Tweetup, which aired on its 10 p.m. newscast last night in conjunction with a story on Twitter’s growth and role in — no joke — Middle Eastern politics.

Tsudo’s got more on last night’s festivities at the Official #LRTweetup blog, including shout-outs to our hosts at the Capital Bar & Grill and Brant Collins, who fashioned some snazzy name tags for everyone to wear.

We hope to have a few pics from last night available later today (send them here if you’d like me to post them). Meanwhile, keep watching for news on our next event. And thanks again to everyone for coming out and creating another memorable Tweetup.

UPDATE: The official estimate of last night’s event: 50-60 folks. A couple of photos, after the jump:
