Completely anecdotal but a possible indicator of increased use of Twitter in the last few months? In September I noted that there had been 300+ tweets tagged with #altc2008 relating to the 3-day 600+ delegate Association of Learning Technologies annual conference. Today I’m at a 1-day virtual worlds event with about 70 people and so far there seem to be 400+ tweets and rising. Post on the event will follow on my work blog.
Oh happy new year! (resolution to blog more often going really well)
Update (Jan 21): Final count for #cevw09 was 600+ which didn’t please everyone.
I have to say I found it a bit much too and I was there! Lots of people saying what the guy in front of me had just said BUT I have really enjoyed following other events… so nicely positioned on the fence! Be interested to hear what others think…
