Twubs - Moderated Display of Twitter Hashtag
We've been looking for a way to display a twitter feed at a conference. We would like to moderate it so that the feed doesn't get spammed. Twubs.com is a site that allows you to register your hashtag and register your event. You can then control how fast your feed displays - so people can read it - and you can alter the screen - so that your hashtag is displayed for people to participate. We are getting ready for our conference this weekend, so this will be our first live event. All of our tests have worked great.
Twubs.com will help us display our hashtag for the Dublin Literacy Conference - #dublit13. I hope by displaying the pre-conference tweets, it will generate some excitement and lead into some continued backchannel discussions. Check it out on Saturday.
