Live Tweeting #Listen09

March 15, 2009

Listening has always been social. And now it’s part of social media, too.

So that even more people can learn about the impact listening has on our lives, please join me (@barbaranixon) in live-tweeting the International Listening Association conference this week in Milwaukee, WI.

When you are in a session, or after a session is done, let others know your impressions of the highlights of the session using Twitter, a microblogging service, in 140-character messages. You can tweet from your computer (if you have wifi Internet access or from your cell phone by texting to 40404.)

  • Sign up for an account at Twitter or sign into your existing Twitter account.
  • Tell the name of the session and who the presenters are.
  • Distill highlights of the session into 140-character nuggets.
  • End each highlight with the “hashtag” #listen09
  • Read what others are saying about the ILA conference sessions by going to

Questions? Find me. I’ll be around at the conference (usually wearing pink & black). Or send me a tweet!

Poll: Is Twitter Listening?

March 4, 2009

This morning on Twitter, I saw this tweet from Pete Cashmore of @Mashable: “Funniest. Twitter account. Ever. –> @TheMime.”  And what does The Mime have to say? See for yourself.

That got me thinking. When you use Twitter, does it feel more like you’re listening, or more like you are reading? Please take this one-question survey.

And feel free to embed this PollDaddy poll in your own site, too. Insert the code “polldaddy poll=1423874” (using brackets in place of the quotation marks) into a post.
