The second day of SES San Jose is wrapping up, so it must be time for the Twitter roundup! There were a number of debates, someone was found sleeping in the first row drooling and another person claimed that most people at the session were probably already following him on Twitter. Fun times! Once again, I watched the stream throughout the day and pulled out tweets that had a call to action with useful information.

Twitter was a bit whacky today. At one point the search was running about 45 minutes behind, which doesn’t help when you’re trying to put together a Twitter roundup. That aside today was a great day for tweets, and I’d love to hear if there was one that stood out for you. Also, do you find that the tweets represented the session accurately (if you were there that is).
See ya’ll tomorrow when I’ll have information on the best part of going to a search conference!
