@pressedconf was exciting, yet totally different than my usual conference preparation exercises! Rather than preparing slidedecks, I was preparing a combination of tweets, threads, links, media, and logical follows for communicating topics – using the best of Twitter’s features to make following the presentation both live and in the future as easy as possible! I also wanted to facilitate as much conversation as possible, and allowing each tweet and thought to serve as a starting point for communication, discussion, and debate.
My top tip is to think like a microblogger and deliver your knowledge in tiny, useful chunks. Tweet threads and metadata (URL, image) previews are your best friend! Don’t be afraid to link to more detail if needed, but use Twitter as it’s intended – for dialogue and dissemination!
