If you're like me, you've heard a lot about Twitter lately and wondered what all the hubbub was about. Twitter is best thought of as a 'microblogging' approach to publishing on the Internet that is limited to 140 characters at a time.
As you know, I follow communication technologies and their use by/for dairy professionals, so I've checked out Twitter and pondered its use with dairy. One of the best uses I've seen is doing 'real-time' live 'microblogging', called tweets', from a conference.
With that in mind, you can follow me at the 17th ADSA Discover Conference that is focused on Dairy Herd Analytics. You can review the program at http://www.adsa.org/discover/17thDiscover/Program062509.pdf . I will be providing real-time information about the speakers and their key conclusions as the conference progresses. You can track my postings (tweets) at http://twitter.com/dairyadviser.
There are opportunities for you to ask real-time questions of the speakers at the following dates/times. Please note that all times are US Eastern Daylight Time.
Tuesday, 25 August
Wednesday, 26 August
Thursday, 27 August
11:15 AM (Wrap UP)
You can ask questions for the speakers or make comments by using Twitter.com direct messages to me (@dairyadviser). To do that, you need to signup with Twitter.com for a free account and then 'follow' me. If you follow me, then you can send a direct message.
I hope you can use this opportunity of an excellent and stimulating conference program to explore the Twitter communication approach.
Hope that helps
