How to use Twitter to post updates from 2012 #ACAAI meeting
See an example of best practice by @MatthewBowdish posted here: http://allergynotes.blogspot.com/search/label/WSAAI (his tweets were summarized in a series of blog posts by me). The tweets were labeled #WSAAI and they reached more than 3,000 people.
I would strongly encourage you to post updates on Twitter from the CME conferences that you are planning to attend in the future.

Comments from Twitter:
@PAallergy Should we expect 5000 tweets/hr from #ACAAI?
@MatthewBowdish No, just 200/hr. Unfollow now and refollow at 5pm PST. ;)
@PAallergy: Jealous of my fellow Allergists and tweeters. They are having fun in CA #ACAAI and I am working. I wonder if following #ACAAI on twitter would count for CME?
@AllergyNet: RACP Australia accepts sending and reading medical tweets as CME.
@MatthewBowdish I like @BarnardWerner 's use of evernote for live-tweeting. I might try that at the Western Soc Meeting in January #WSAAI
@DrSilge: @MatthewBowdish Thanks for the updates, reading them en route to #ACAAI
@MatthewBowdish: Thanks, but live-tweeting lit review is tougher than I thought it would be. This was my first #ACAAI literature review. I really enjoyed it and it's given me lots of ideas. Finishing up today & back home tomorrow. Looking fwd to tweets from @DrSilge @BarnardWerner & @DrAnneEllis #ACAAI Have fun!! Good split coverage - sorry there's no chance for a tweet up - perhaps San Antonio? #aaaai
@AllergyNet: And thank you all! We are ‘listening’ here Down Under.

@IgECPD: With all these #ACAAI tweets coming in from @DrAnneEllis and @DrSilge I'm starting to hear the "dueling banjos" music. Twitter's not a competition but @MatthewBowdish is still winning http://t.co/2rPoZqWe
@ChrisCarrollMD: Great tweets & updates on cutting edge #asthma research from @DrAnneEllis at the #ACAAI conference today! Thanks!
