Ok, kiddies, I know you all love a good tear-jerker from me on Tuesdays but this week I would not dream of it. How could I possibly think of shedding a tear when I am off to a geek girls heaven sort of a day.
Yes, my friends, out of the basement and off to the Twitter conference better known as the 140 characters conference, or as we tweetgeeks call it: #140conf.
For those who are not twitter savvy but are afraid to ask, 140 refers to the amount of characters a tweet is limited to, hence the name.
By the time most of you read this post I will be way gone and sitting my geeky (not so) little ass in a seat at the 92nd Street Y listening to the rock stars of twitter spout the many uses for the platform. (does this tweet make my ass look fat?)
For all you early adopters, this is so very yesterday. You are out there with all your location based apps like Foursquare rolling your eyes at how twitter is so over. (um, doubt that) But for most of my readers, you are finally believing me that twitter IS a big deal and I am NOT nuts. Well I am nuts, but not about this.
Nonetheless, a day out of the basement is a rare treat for this chick so I will thank you very much for indulging me a tearless tuesday.
If you follow me on twitter I will be live tweeting with the #140conf hashtag and will try my best to give those of you who could not make (@lizscherer and @wendyscherer, I am crying a little that you will not be joining) a better first-hand look at what is happening than trying to follow the unreliable stop start video on ustream.
This all makes being there at 8AM less ungodly. If you are at the conference stop by and say hello.
