Leigh Johnson (Christian Brothers University) has issued a CFT — a call for tweeters — for the upcoming meeting of the Society for Phenomenology and Existentialist Philosophy (SPEP) later this month. (The tweets from last year’s conference are archived here.) What are the benefits of having people live tweet a conference? Johnson’s answer includes:
- keeps you informed about what is happening in concurrent sessions
- allows for additional questions and discussions of presentations beyond the limited time of the sessions
- puts you in touch with new people interested in similar topics
You can go to her post for more details. I’d be curious to hear about others’ experiences with and thoughts about live-tweeting conferences.
