Does Your Event Own Its Twitter ID?

I was exchanging tweets with an old colleague about using Twitter for her upcoming show.  I noticed that her show's name (and logical variants, like <showname year>) have not been claimed.

A Twitter ID may be meaningless to you today if you're not planning on using it right away.  And maybe it doesn't have and will never have the value of a URL.  But it has value.  And just like there were squatters holding URLs hostage, it's bound to happen with Twitter.

Grab your show name and open an account now.  Before I do.

Great point, but what about the hashtag for conference dialogue and feedback. Plus, we were always worried about leaving out the 95% of Americans not on Twitter! We built http://GuerrillaTweets.com for this kind of scenario, it allows you to spread the tweets farther and include anyone that has a cell phone via text message. It's work in progress, would love to hear your feedback!
Thanks, Chris
