I was listed as one of the 140 characters for 140conf, a Twitter conference happening next week in New York city. However, due to some tight deadlines that have me running in circles, I had to back out. It pains me to miss this conference as it’s organized by Jeff Pulver and will see a mix of media, personalities, topics, and social causes discussed.
Heavy-hitting social media stars and celebrities in attendance include the man who coined “web 2.0”, Tim O’Reilly, along with Chris Brogan, Brian Solis, Liz Strauss, Wyclef Jean, iJustine, and Robert Scoble.
Since I’m no longer on the roster Jeff is doing an open casting call to fill up the character spot. To be considered, there are two options:
1. Tweet out the reason you are a character, in the following suggested format:
– @140conf I am a Character. I want to be at #140conf because…
2. As an alternative approach, record a short video and make your case on video why you are a character. (12seconds is the recommended platform). When promoting a supporting video, use the format:
– @140conf I am a Character and should be considered for cast of #140conf. Watch (link to video)
Also, make sure youâ€™re following @140conf, so you can be notified via direct message if you win.
It will be an unforgettable event so tune into the #140conf conversations on Twitter June 16th and 17th and be sure to register if you’re able to attend in person.
