Introduce ourselves, how we each came to Twitter, first me, then Eva (Josh) Thank you for coming .. Eva and I are going to talk about the value of Twitter for UX pros like all of us. We will not be twittering our presentation -- but please feel free if you’d like to tweet while we talk. I’m user experience manager at Hewlett-Packard. I design interfaces for photo mashup web applications, and embed them into social network and photo sharing sites like Flickr and MySpace. I joined Twitter about two years ago, but like a lot of people, I didn’t use it much at first because I didn’t quite get it.
