As many of you know Twitter is THE way to get the latest fastest breaking news, but did you know that Twitter is very useful and popular at conference. This year’s NWA conference hash tag is #NWAS12. But what good does a conference hash tag do? Well, it lets people carry one conversations with each other while they are at the conference. In addition many people “live tweet” a conference using the conference hashtag. This allows people who aren’t able to attend the conference to get to see some of the highlights from some of the presenters. In the past it was sometimes difficult to follow what what was tweeted and by whom. This year the NWA Social Media team will try and experiement in Twitter visualization. At the following page you will be able to see (at least) the last 1,500 tweets that have been sent with the #NWAS12 tag. By clicking on each node of the diagram you will be able to see all the tweets from that person. You can even click on a button and the tweets will display in the order and timeliness that they were sent. We hope you enjoy this unique way to see your tweets.
