As is common in many conferences these days, Twitter was widely used. Each conference room had its own Twitter hash tag, which allowed a “Twitter Moderator” to relay questions from the Twitter feed to the speakers. Large monitors in the hallways of the conference center displayed the feeds for easy reading.
At the e-books session on Thursday morning, I found myself sitting behind two Tweeters.
They turned out to be Stephanie Kenna (at left below) and Hazel Hall (right), from the Library and Information Science Research Coalition. Stephanie was a Twitter Moderator for the session.
You will probably not be surprised to learn that many interesting opinions surfaced in the Twitter streams.
