See examples of best practice by  @MatthewBowdish and @DrAnneEllis posted here: (tweets were summarized in a series of blog posts by me). For example, the tweets from 2012 AAAAI meeting reached more than 250,000 people.

I would strongly encourage you to post updates on Twitter from the CME conferences that you are planning to attend in the future.
