Guidelines for tweeting at SRS Conferences

Twitter is a great medium to involve people who are not physically present in our dialogues; one aim of live tweeting at a conference is to let these people follow our ideas and join in or create a conversation about these ideas if they so wish. Thus, a conference twitter feed allows for our discussions to reach beyond the confines of the lecture room and the conference venue.
