We write occasionally for the Nature Network, as such we thought readers maybe interested in our latest post on the rise of twitting at events and conferences.
A few weeks ago we presented our latest work ‘The Geography of Everything’ at the yearly conference organised by the Centre for Advanced Spatial Analysis at University College London. With the work featured in New Scientist and based around a new way of tagging every object in the world via the talesofthings.com site we hoped for a good reception. Indeed the reception was good with an excellent write up in the Guardian and a series of suitably scientific questions fielded and answered. What we were not quite prepared for was the archive of the tweet feed with various audience members ‘tweeting’ through the event.
