#Media140 London – Everything A Brand Needs To Know About Twitter & Real-Time Social Media

I’m attending the Media140 conference in London today. In fact, by the time you read this, I’ll already be there or perhaps still on the (0639) train. I’m excited, because the subject this time is brands, something which has become very much a part of my working life in the past few months.

Media140 London: How Is Real-Time Social Media Changing The Rules Of Consumer Engagement?

This is the second Media140 event. The previous and first, which I also attended in May of this year, was a huge success. This second event is bigger and by all accounts should be better, too – it’s completely sold out.

(The after-party is a blast. Tickets are still available here.)

I’ll be live-tweeting the entire event, which runs from 9am until about 6pm, and you can follow everything by tracking the #media140 hashtag on Twitter. If you follow me on Twitter, that’s pretty much all I’ll be tweeting about in the day.

Also, if you’re looking for a great list of people to follow, all of whom are involved with this year’s event, check out the Media140 list on TweepML.

If you’re attending tomorrow and want to say hello, I’ll be the guy with the shaved head and the black Samsung NC10 netbook. My default expression seems to be the scowl, but I assure you I’m a lot friendlier than I look. Would be nice to hook up, and put some names to faces. :)
