Twitter tips

  • Use hashtag ACR13 for ACR (directly) related tweets
  • Consider using lists of the best users rather than following the main hashtag, which can get crowded
  • Don't use the ACR13 hashtag if you tweet isn't directly related to the meeting, i.e. "the weather is beautiful #ACR13"
  • Favorite tweets mentioning good or bad lectures to prioritize watching lectures later on Session Select
  • Don't do a tweet for every slide of every lecture (We admit, we'd been guilty of that before.)
