SEP 22-23: 140 | The Twitter Conference (140tc) - Featured Event of the Week

Posted by Don Rose

It's finally here - the highest profile Twitter conference to hit LA. Nicknamed 140tc, "140 - The Twitter Conference (Tapping Into the Real Time Web)" takes place at the Skirball Cultural Center on September 22 and 23, 2009. Be there or be obsolete. 140 is the place where developers, business people, and enthusiasts converge to find innovative ways to use and benefit from Twitter, arguably the fastest growing Web phenomenon that exists today.

The two-day two-track conference focuses on professional uses of Twitter and is hosted by The Parnassus Group, which has done a stellar job attracting star speakers to the event. The A-list lineup includes Twitter co-founder Biz Stone, Tony Robbins, Dr. Drew Pinsky, actor/singer Tyrese and X Games superstar Tony Hawk as well as legendary lawyer Mark Geragos, Levar Burton, Guy Kawasaki and many more. To see who else is speaking at the event check out the 140tc speakers page.

But wait, there's more! As if all the celebs, keynotes and cool panels weren't enough, the hot LA band Hypnogaja (@hypnogaja) will be performing during the conference reception at the close of the first day, September 22. The party is open to conference attendees only, so there’s one more reason to register. Now that you're suitably wowed, proceed ASAP to buy a ticket. Register here!
