Out of all the social networks, Twitter is the one I find most people don’t understand and in fact, may even fear. But the reality is, Twitter is making its way to an event near you. You may have even been at an event recently that encouraged you to tweet from the event and which had a dedicated event hash tag?
Talking “@” Someone
Hash Tags (#)
How It Comes Together
How to Take it to the Next Level
So upon arrival at any event, I always set up a “hash tag stream” on Hootsuite so I can track the online conversations at the event which enables me to monitor what is being said and re-tweet it or start getting involved in the conversation at any time I wanted.
By encouraging tweeting at your event, you are effectively “viralising” the event. It enables other people to ‘sell’ it on your behalf.
Do you even have a Twitter handle?
Do you understand hash tags?
Do you think it could be a good idea to track hash tags at events so you can start participating at conversations?
