#SRS2016: Guidelines for Twitter at the SRS Conference

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. Some scholars, however, are not comfortable with broadcasting the ideas they formulate as a conference paper so widely before committing them to publication, or are concerned their ideas can be misrepresented in other people’s tweets; it is important that we take such concerns into account. Any speaker who does not want to be tweeted can make this be known at any time. We will be advising chairs of the individual sessions to double-check with speakers whether they are comfortable with being tweeted.
