I’m a character @ #140conf
- 9 Comment
On June 16 and 17, myself, along with 139 other Twitter folk, (a.k.a. Twitter characters) will invade New York City to discuss all things Twitter at #140conf. This means rubbing elbows with the likes of Jack Dorsey (co-founder of Twitter) to CNN’s Rick Sanchez and all those in between. (The conference is an open for registration, the 140 characters are featured participants.)
The original premise for the event was to explore the effects of Twitter on celebrity, media, advertising and politics. This conference has grown so rapidly that there are now many other topics (and celebrities) getting involved. #140conf will look at Twitter as a platform and some of the industries which have been disrupted by the advent of Twitter. That’s right. It isn’t all about drinking the Twitter Kool-Aid.
So what is the conference? It is the brainchild of Jeff Pulver and here it is in his own words:
Will you be joining me there? It’s not too late to register. See you there!
