Since in-person and hybrid conferences are on the rise these days, I’d like to revisit the topic of live-reporting via Twitter from conferences and events.
The concept of live-tweeting is to keep your Twitter followers updated when a significant event takes place. Tweeters use the hashtag relevant to the event they are tweeting about, found on the conference’s website or Twitter profile. By using the hashtag, Twitter followers who are not able to attend the conference in person can follow along, which increases the conference’s reach. As a bonus, live-tweeting enhances the conference experience, generates international engagement and global reach, and stimulates collaboration.
The infographic below was created almost 10 years ago, but the tips it contains are still relevant today.
