Twitter is still a really small village – #smclondon08

At the SocialMediaCamp London ’08, I noticed an interesting side effect of having such “huge” amount of SNS geeks together – we have totally overthrown the Twitter. Even before the breakfast fully began, #smclondon08 hash-tag was already top trending topic and it continues to be so through out the day. At the time of the writing (3/4 of day done), we’ve already posted 600+ Tweets.

I guess the good side of this gathering is that we now effectively measured the size of Twitter-sphere and how much buzz it takes to become a trending topic and get attention of others.

  1. I noticed this as well and clearly I'm amazed that we managed to overtake subjects like the US elections !!!

    Great day though !

  2. Makes me wonder just what kind of mischief you could get up to with a few hash tags. Like flash mobbing but on Twitter. Twit-mobbing..?

  3. You probably could write whole om nom and ma na ma na muppets with a bit of rick rolling on a good large barcamp in London or SF.
