Wow, what a week! For those of you that don’t know, I was at the Twitter #140Conf in New York City last week! It was awesome to be in the big apple, and to be in the presence of such industry leaders. Hopefully you followed my live stream of tweets coming from our Twitter account @WilsonCellular.

6-14 to 6-16: Bright and early (as in 3AM early) on Tuesday morning, I headed off to the Las Vegas airport to fly to NYC for the #140Conf. The next few days were amazing! I heard from over 140 speakers, who shared personal experiences with Twitter and social media. Some speakers you may have heard of were NBC News Anchor Ann Curry, Newark Mayor Cory Booker, Joe Trippi, Mashable’s Adam Ostrow, and Foursquare’s Dennis Crowley. Below are some of my favorite tweets that I took during the conference. Remember to check out our twitter feed to see what you may have missed 🙂
