SMAANZ 2012 – Twitter summary

Here’s an archive of the tweets from the Sport Management Australia and New Zealand (SMAANZ) Conference at University Technology Sydney, 28-30 November 2012.

This is the second year that there has been a groundswell of Tweeps attending – adding another channel to the conversation. The tweets started the conversation before the conference and is continuing it afterwards, with some presenters uploading presentations. A notable mention to Olan Scott, for uploading his prior to the conference.

You can read the full Tweetreach report here.I’ve done a quick analysis (read VERY quick) of the tweets and here’s a summary. These include the RTs

Promoting overall conference – 24
Promoting individual speaker – 25
Tweet of a presentation – 17
Asides/personal – 14
Instragram – 2
Foursquare checkin – 1

So where to from here?

Next year, I’ll be trying (again) to UStream my presentations. I’d also like to try some smart phone “clickers” in a presentation and also an interactive Twitter feed.

It would also be great to have a screen of the Tweets in the breakout rooms to further stimulate conversation.

Even though there isn’t the same need for hashtags, it’d be good to go with a common one. My preference is #SMAANZ – given the short life of tweets, we don’t need to differentiate between years. Then that we can have four extra characters.

    @smaanz2012 curious on the choice of screen name. Why not be Smaanz for branding across years, and work 2012 via the hashtag?

    At last! Some research about social media – this time about sport teams. It would seem rude NOT to tweet @AJKarg @patdavis3 @trgaa #smaanz
  56. danya
    AFL clubs are moving away from promotion and using social media for interaction. Clubs now using a more standard approach #smaanz
  57. danya
    Females are interacting on social media more with AFL teams than males #smaanz
  58. danya
    AFL clubs still use a generic approach to social media. No targeting of particular segments or differentiation across platforms #smaanz

    Great work @AJKarg slipping the term isomorphism into your presentation! #smaanz #buzzwordbingo
