At Tuesday’s Lunchtime #MashDMU‘s meeting, after introducing Analogue Twitter, I talked about the use of hashtags, particularly to follow events. I referred to What Are Hashtags (“#” Symbols)? and http://hashtags.org/.
I then logged on to the social conference directory Lanyrd, which helps you to find events that your Twitter contacts may be attending or speaking at. This is a useful tool for professional development in these difficult economic times.
