No, I'm not asking about your abilities to do bird calls; I'm asking if you participate in the micro-blogging phenomenon known as Twitter. Sure, the WestMuse blog is a great way to read about exciting and informative sessions and events here at WMA 2009, but even just writing up a short blog post can take a little time and thought. But quick real-time updates about the conference are being tweeted all the time!
As a micro-blogging site, Twitter asks one simple question: "What are you doing?" and you have 140 characters or less with which to respond to that question.
So, are you in an amazing session right now that you just can't wait to tell people about? Did you just overhear a great one-liner in the exhibit hall? Get on Twitter and share it with us! It's free to sign up and use Twitter.
Don't have a computer? You can still be a part of all the tweeting by using your mobile phone! Just be sure that however you tweet, you include #wma09 someplace in your post so that everyone knows that you are talking about the conference and can more easily find your tweet!
