I mentioned yesterday that I’m speaking at a conference on community leadership in Denver. Prior to the conference, one of the workshop presenters set up a Twitter for conference participants to use during the conference. I’ve been receiving real-time messages from him as he sits in workshops. He shares his thoughts and pushes back on what he is hearing (in real-time).
There’s something I like about this as a speaker. Imagine receiving real-time feedback as you’re speaking. I know this could cause problems, but it could also force the speaker to shape more helpful comments that actually help a group take away something of immediate value.
Real-time feedback is becoming more the norm and Twitter just might add to that trend.
