How to use Twitter to post updates from 2012 AAAAI meeting

See an example of best practice by @MatthewBowdish posted here: (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. Here is how to do it: Twitter for Physicians: How to use Twitter to keep track of the latest news and scientific meetings, and share information with colleagues and patients.
