The previous post talked about the tweets appearing in the sidebar, but sometime before Convention, I moved them to a separate page, change.bbvx.org/tweets/ that you can find in the horizontal menu at the top of the page.
We didn’t do a good job of advertising this (ask me over a beer about the failed strategies), but a couple of us did post from a cell phone or blackberry to the web from the Convention Center.
One characteristic of the twitter.com postings is that they are “transient” — that page is probably empty now.
We also had a technical glitch on Sunday/Monday that meant the “real-time” tweets from the convention floor (on the bylaws changes and the public policy debate) were lost in cyber-space somewhere. But it was a start.
Perhaps with the leadership meetings tentatively planned for next summer we’ll be able to exchange information among the different venues — and allow the folks “back home” to get the flavor of the event even if their schedules prevent them from attending.
Here are a few examples of what you would have seen if you’d gone to that “tweets” page or to the twitter.com/aauw07/with_friends page during the convention.
I called my cell phone service to take off the text messaging subscription… We’ll see what happens for the *next* meeting …
Twitter has dropped support for the “with friends” feature. However, since @aauw has started tweeting, perhaps we’ll have a chance to make twitter part of the St. Louis convention. I’ll be looking into “grouptweet.com” for some things…
