SASM2013's Twitterwall

Written by


During the #SASM2013 Conference, all participants are invited to post opinions, reports, and feedback on the meeting’s Twitter Wall.

Simply tweet using your laptop or smartphone using the official conference hashtag: #SASM2013

How do people use Twitter at conferences? Here is a list:

  1. Share highlights of a interesting topic that was presented.
  2. Share resources about a topic presented, i.e. an interesting web link, pdf article etc.
  3. Ask a question about a topic or conference event.
  4. Share your conference experience.

Lastly, keep the content of the tweets as relevant as possible. The Twitterwall is extremely useful for people who cannot physically attend the conference to follow whats happening at #SASM2013.
