With the 2017 INFORMS Computing Society Conference in Austin around the corner, I was looking for useful way to make a binary joke and decided to write about tweeting.
For a long time I used Twitter as I would use Linkedin (that is, if Linkedin worked): for networking and letting people know about something going on where I was. This type of tweet, which I now call “Look what you are missing”, is quite useful.

I still use Twitter in that way, particularly when I am busy keeping session time (like above) or trying to understand something that is new to me. However, I started paying attention to other people’s tweets and decided to use it in a more productive way for me and others: taking notes of what seem to be the takeaway message or good to know.

But there is another – more entertaining – way of using Twitter in conferences…

I still have to figure how to tweet while giving a talk. Talk would entail 100 types of tweets!
