Spotlight for Career Services ProfessionalsFebruary 19, 2014
by Megan Wolleben
I am a self-professed Twitter lover. One of the things I love most about Twitter is being able to take part in conversations at events and conferences, whether I am physically there or not.
When I’m following the conversation from my own computer, the issue of how the tweets are displayed is moot. When I’m at an event, it’s a whole different story. Displaying tweets during an event can help us attendees put faces to names, handles to hair color, and give us a chance to take our fingers off the keyboard for a handshake with a new acquaintance. But sometimes displaying them on the big screen is not so pretty.
I found several good options for displaying tweets that you may want to consider using for the next event, meeting, or conference your career center is hosting:
A few notable mentions:
Most of these platforms offer free versions but do have plans you can purchase that offer more options, design input, and control or moderation. And, of course, there are many other platforms out there that can help you display the tweets around the next conference or event you host—these are just a few to help get you started.
