    One more tool for the backchannel, if I may: tweet from within the event app…we started using the tweet wall for our clients, and found two small inconvenience: the event hashtag was misspelled quite a bit, and the twitter ID was the other “master data” issue for our wall.

    How to make it super-easy for participants to tweet during an event, and connect with the speaker and others? And do that without skimping on quality – because these entries all need to use the same event hashtag, and have the precise Twitter ID? We built the tool in our mobile event app – see our zwoor.com blog entry:

    Hope this is helpful.
