If you are interested in checking out what was discussed during the Tourism event at Unitec last night the best place to review this is to do a full search using the # code below on the tweetstream.

#UnitecFTF

The hashtag (#) is used to group tweets on a topic from mutiple tweeters in real time and allows a partial conversation to take place.

It is a live feedback loop and at every big event now there is more information being broadcast by attendees on their mobile phones and WiFi than by conventional media.

It is all very much stream of consciousness and for a live event the spelling may be random as tweeters try to keep up by recording and commenting, and asking questions when they can.

The tweets below are showing some of the first ones from the event at and then just a sample and selection of random stream at various points along the process.

At Unitec We had two large video screens running Twitterfall including # tweets from others & a few direct @ questions there were roughly 300 tweets during the 2 hrs that the event was live.

Note: both the twitterfall and twitter search will give varying results as they are live searhes and later tweets will replace the content that is there now.

We invited anyone to ask questions which we would then feedback to the live panel.

“Any curly questions for Tourism sector panel tonite please ask us by using the #UnitecFTF hashtag”

This  prompted a number of questions from followers (viewers following the event.)

The UnitecFTF avatar symbol below is us tweeting about the event and the other avatars are feedback from others mostly outside the room.
