Tweet Me Right - SoCon11

As promised – below are the tweets from my session at SoCon11 on Saturday plus a few follow-ups tweets.  Thanks to the attendees who made it a great session.  And special thanks to my Twitter moderator Jay Lambert @lambertjay who was awesome as you’ll see from the tweets!

I’ve reordered the tweets and grouped related tweets together to make the stream easier to read.
LambertJay: Moved to room 3019 RT @KellyVandever: Involve your audience! Use Twitter backchannel! Tweet Me Right session #tweetrt #Tweetrt

LambertJay: Vandever – #SoCon11 Read Cliff Atkinson’s The Backchannel – Tweet Me Right #Tweetrt
LambertJay: Vandever – #SoCon11 Backchannel is things going on outside of speaker addressing audience; back of the room, water cooler, Twitter #Tweetrt

LambertJay: Vandever – #SoCon11 When should you incorporate Twitter in a speaking session? Depends on your audience. Some might not be ready. #Tweetrt

LambertJay: Vandever – #SoCon11 But some audiences will surprise you and embrace Twitter. Talk to them about it. #Tweetrt

LambertJay: Vandever – #SoCon11 To engage audience before session, promote the entire event! Know your material & audience. Start tweeting b4 #Tweetrt
LambertJay: Hey @DawnGartin – do you have a #Tweetrt question? 🙂 #Tweetrt

@DawnGratin is a mutual friend of @LambertJay and I.  Jay knew Dawn wasn’t able to come to #SoCon11 so he asked if she had a question.  There have been cases where a person unable to attend an event has been following the Twitter stream and tweeted a friend at the event to request the friend ask a question — the person outside the room gets to benefit from & interact with the session.  How cool is that?!

WendyKinney: #Tweetrt does is matter if the Tweet begins with the #? @KellyVandever #SoCon11

KellyVandever @WendyKinney answer to ? placement of hashtag- anywhere OK. Some people use it as part of sentence, some lead w/it, Tweetchat puts at end.

WendyKinney: Put things on the screen that the audience can tweet. @KellyVandever #Tweetrt #SoCon11

LambertJay: Vandever – #SoCon11 Include soundbites in your session which you know are tweetable (and retweetable) #Tweetrt

WendyKinney: Search.Twitter.com and TweetChat.com are the places to find out if your hash tag is available #Tweetrt #SoCon11 @KellyVandever

LambertJay: Vandever – #SoCon11 Spend time before session listening/following what’s being said on session hashtag. Interact. #Tweetrt

LambertJay: Vandever – #SoCon11 Use Twitter in advance to set the tone of your session #Tweetrt

LambertJay: Vandever – #SoCon11 Don’t open your session with the Twitter logistics; still have a good opening first #Tweetrt

LambertJay: Vandever – #SoCon11 Include Twitter breaks in your session to answer questions, etc. Enlist a Twitter moderator to help out. #Tweetrt

LambertJay: RT @WendyKinney Search.Twitter.com & TweetChat.com are places to find if your hashtag is available #Tweetrt #SoCon11 @KellyVandever #Tweetrt

LambertJay: RT @WendyKinney: #SoCon11 #Tweetrt @KellyVandever Retweets from the audience let the speaker validate the relevance of questions. #Tweetrt

WendyKinney: @KellyVandever losing eyecontact with tweets is the same as when the audience is taking notes. Get used to it. #Tweetrt #SoCon11
