That was how I feel when I attended the Startup Weekend 2012 in Singapore just yesterday.
Startup Weekend 2012 was held over 54hrs at NUS Business School. Yesterday at 6pm, about 20 startups had a 5min opportunity to present their wonderful ideas to some of our top local investors and entrepreneurs. The startup scene here is certainly growing and I like to congratulate the organizers Jacky and his team for the seamless event executions.
So when I first step into the atrium, the first thing I did was to draw out my iphone and began taking pictures with instagr.am. I uploaded the pictures to tumblr and started to tweet. I was like a reporter, reporting what presentation was coming up next, how is the idea different from its competitor and even what the judges were saying. And this is not just me alone! (some of the judges tweet out their thoughts too)
I think I was doing this for an hour or so when my friend tweeted a complained that I was spamming
It’s not just reporting, with twitter I even had the opportunity to ask the judges questions. And they replied!!! It just makes the world closer.
I have 2 questions and would love to hear from you guys!
Q: What would you have done to avoid spamming on your friends’ twitter timeline?
Q: Have you ever use twitter as a reporting tool? And how would you make twitter a better reporting tool?
Let’s take the Q&A into comments!
