Hashing Online

There promises to be extensive coverage of the Online Information show on Twitter. The hashtag is #online09. There’s a Twapper Keeper for the show as well, set up by Mary Ellen Bates. I also noticed that Twapper Keeper is introducing GeoLocating, which is somewhat pointless for international conferences such as this one. The conference and exhibition is in London (time zone GMT), but Mary Ellen’s based in Colorado, 7 time zonesĀ  away.

And what have people been using Twitter for? Since there’s no information from actual presentations as yet, tweets have been largely self-promotional (as in I’m speaking at a certain time) or company-related (as in visit us on stand xxx). Tomorrow the volume of tweets should go way way up.
