This may come as a surprise to those who followed my flurry of ISA 2014 tweets, but I actually spend very little time on Twitter. In the “real world,” (for ISA feels, at least, as though it takes place in another dimension), I’m more likely to be found on Facebook or the select blog. Twitter, however, seems tailor-made for conferences and other special events, and so I figured that my inaugural Relations International post might as well highlight a handful of resources for the verbose conference tweeter:

One final tip: not only should tweeters (tweeps?) use the conference hashtag (e.g. #isa2014), you should also use session hashtags (e.g. #sd04) to make it easy for people to follow specific conversations.
