Alison Young BarCamp Twitter Talk


Published on

Slides from the talk I did giving a brief overview of Twitter. Inspired to create and deliver the talk after the many blank looks I received while being on the Registrations desk at BarCamp Sydney when I invited attendees to write both their names and their Twitter names on the nametags.

Special mention to Stephen Collins aka @trib for telling me I should post these here and also because I forgot to mention him on the kudos page.
