Thought a few people might be interested in this :) Apologies for the short notice, we found out just a couple of days ago.
RSVP quick, we've had 60 regos in only a day - http://gov20actmar2013.eventbrite.com/
Cheers, Pia
From the event page:

This month we have some special guests from Twitter to talk to you. Our apologies for the short notice but we only just found out and didn't want to miss the opportunity for you :)

Adam and Mike will present case studies and examples from across the world to show how government agencies are establishing a presence on Twitter to engage with members of government, international institutions and domestic citizenry to achieve extraordinary outcomes.

A huge thanks as always to DEEWR for generously offering their excellent lecture theatre as a venue for this Gov 2.0 catch up. They have run loads of fantastic events, some of which have been livestreamed and you can find useful Gov 2.0 content from previous events at http://www.deewr.gov.au/department/theatre/pages/previousevents.aspx

You can view some previous Gov 2.0 lunchtime content at http://soundcloud.com/opengov/
