"Twitter hearts Berlin" "I'm just here for the free booze"
The Twitter Developer Teatime Berlin event may have wound up, but the free beers are still being quaffed and the networking is in full swing. As you'd expect from a collection of tech cognoscenti and the big Twitter hitters, there was plenty of live broadcasting from the event.
Along with calls to be quiet at the back, the inevitable crashed Wifi and requests for (free) beer at the bar, here's our lowdown on the event, told through the medium of the top Tweets tagged as #teatimeBLN...
