The trip to Social Media Marketing World in San Diego still has me buzzing with energy and excitement. As with any conference, there was a dizzying amount of information and insight. The best way I find to keep up with it all is to live tweet during the event, and then review my tweets for the top nuggets of information gleaned from the event – as judged by my peers’ RTs. I call these “twuggets”, of course. Here are my favorites ones from the conference (tweet them if you agree!):
