Attending a Twitter Conference

I’ve been very busy lately dealing with social media.  I blogged about attending The Digital Content NewFront, hosted by Digitas.  A few days later, I appeared at TWTRCON NY, a one-day conference focused entirely on the business use of Twitter, held at the Hilton Hotel in New York City.  The keynote interviewer was David Pogue, personal technology columnist for the New York Times.  I spoke openly about the ways that I use Twitter.  I told the standing-room-only-audience that authenticity is extremely important in all social media and that I believe there are no hard and fast rules about expressing one’s self on Twitter.  It’s always an honor for me to attend such events with so many influential and knowledgeable individuals.
