Twitter and the AALA: Who Knew?!
By Linda McCormick
For what may be the first time, attendees at the 2012 AALA Agricultural Law Symposium were tweeting about the content of sessions, using the hash tag #aala, and perhaps others. At least a couple of uses were evident. Some attendees used this tool to divide up sessions among a group, allowing the group to monitor several presentations at once. In addition, any person with access to Twitter could have been following the tweets as well, reading the “dialogue” of the persons tweeting, thus engaging in the Symposium to a small degree without physically attending. Another use of the tool was to enable attendees who were tweeting to actually meet each other in person.Posted: November 4th, 2012
