TweetCamp Chicago Success!

¡Congratulations! to Maura Hernandez for mobilizing friends and colleagues to create TweetCamp Chicago.

More than 100 Tweeters and Tweeters to be learned about tweeting for personal and professional use. Twitter 101 and one on one was a buzz with those who know how sharing with those who wanted to know. The sharing was wonderful – Twitter basics and apps that make it work. More importantly the willingness to give and take was terrific. The essence of the more you give, the more you receive. I learned so much from everyone – the questions asked and answered.

The Camp was a “unconference” or open space meeting offering opportunities for participant driven classes in 30 minute sessions. The fast pace kept everyone interested and engaged.

It was terrific meeting those you have been following on Twitter. Seeing their real faces instead of the gravatar or mini Twitter photo was a fab. You could write your Twitter handle or real name on the TweetCamp t-shirt making it easy to identify your Twitter friends. The t-shirt was designed by Mike Rhode. They are collector items and may still be available!

Thanks to everyone who attended and tweeted my session on Twitter for Nonprofits – @susanbirk @cytaylor @saduros @kgallagher @nicolegsimonds @interactiveamy @danticoa @karefreeman @karitas @jimsharp @slines @npcommunicator @beingswell. It was great meeting everyone and hearing from YOU!

Maura did a great job recruiting sponsors, securing the location, publicizing and engaging speakers and participants. Congrats and we are looking forward to Tweet Camp Chicago 2.0. Proceeds from the event went to the American Women Journalist scholarship fund.

    Thanks for the link to the Association for Women Journalists’ scholarship info…and for all your help at TweetCamp. While Maura and Keidra were the organizers, the key to this unconference was for everyone to participate and help each other learn. Looking forward to the next one.

    President, AWJ-Chicago
