June 4 10:30 am - 11:15 am Twitter: Radio For A New Age Radio was the must-go place for breaking news, community updates, and entertaining personalities ... sound familiar? Remember your favorite morning show or night jock? Twitter is the radio of this age, with people gathering around their streams to hear about the latest news, gossip or information. And people now rely on Twitter personalities the way they used to rely on deejays to keep them entertained. The same rules that made radio stations great and air personalities larger-than-life can be applied to brands and people on Twitter. Jeff Dauler is a radio personality with over two decades of experience growing audiences, who has taken his radio programming knowledge and applied it to social media. The concepts are simple. Once you hear them and hear how your favorite radio station uses them, you'll never use Twitter (or listen to the radio) the same way again.

June 4 11:45 am - 12:30 pm The Real-Time Social Experience: Entertainment, Media And Publishing In The Age Of Twitter Media and entertainment have forever been altered by social media. The proliferation of Twitter and other social platforms are driving content that passes us by faster than ever before – making audience engagement harder and harder. Brands are forced to architect new experiences that engage audiences across multiple screens, simultaneously, integrating real-time social experiences into digital and TV properties designed to reach new fans and connect viewers. In this session you will learn how TV broadcasters are boosting audience participation by integrating real-time social content into TV graphics and on-set screens, how news media are discovering, filtering and displaying real-time social conversations to improve storytelling, and how publishers and entertainment brands are creating new advertising experiences and building engaged audiences.

In this panel, we'll discuss how professional sports teams and leagues measure the ROI of their social media actions and specifically what they are doing to drive incremental revenue through Twitter and Facebook. Is social media more significant for driving revenue through ticket sales or merchandise? What do sponsorship deals on Twitter and Facebook look like? We will tackle these questions and more throughout this diverse panel comprised of representatives from top professional sports organizations.

June 4 2:30 pm - 3:15 pm The Truth About Twitter: Everything You've Ever Needed To Know (And Some Things That You Didn't) In 2007, way before the social media gurus, comedians, journalists, celebrities and the media, Brandon (aka B.J.) Mendelson signed up for Twitter. In this session, he recounts what he's learned about the service in a way that's immediately actionable, based upon his time on the Suggested User List, having a verified account with three-quarters of a million followers, and spending three years researching the platform and testing what does and doesn't work for his book, Social Media Is Bullshit. B.J. has found many positive ways to use Twitter, but you probably haven't heard about them because nobody has told you the truth - until now. This is the presentation where you will learn everything you need to know about Twitter - and some things you didn't - that can be immediately applied to your company or organization.
