140 Characters Conference: Jeff Pulver & Co. Talk About Twitter
The 140 Characters Conference is both A) real, and B) taking place in New York as we speak. Great. A conference where people tweet about talking about tweeting about talking about tweeting. I'd rather snack on a scorpion sandwich. Jeff Pulver's brainchild is drawing the twitterati to Manhattan for two days of twavel-gazing.
Still, for the second straight year, Twitter is the hot topic for media pundits and marketers alike.
In a nod to Twitter's chokehold on the mainstream consiousness, Time Magazine answered the often-asked "what-is-Twitter-and-why-do-I-care?" question, with this breathless cover story.
Make no mistake: a conference like this is only for folks trying to figure out how to sell you stuff via a free service.
One may presume that the seminars would be remarkably brief?
If you're not at the 140 Conference, here's what you're missing.
