Trinity-University-A0C2AF6FDisclaimer: I attended Trinity University from 2004 – 2008 to earn my Bachelor’s degree in Communication and Marketing.

Today, hundreds will arrive at Trinity University to attend the biggest social media event of its kind to take place in our city – Tweetcamp San Antonio.

This is not a mere coincidence.

When the organizers of Tweetcamp were searching for a venue we had a checklist, nay, a list of demands that had to be fulfilled if Tweetcamp was going to be the rock star event we had in mind.

Our venue had to be wired. Or should we say unwired? Wireless internet access was a must since we expected most, if not all, of our attendees to bring their laptops with them to tweet, blog, stream and browse the internet throughout the event. Trinity is one of Intel’s top 10 most unwired college campuses. Check!

Our venue had to help us showcase the best of our city. Trinity University is located just a few minutes south of the airport and a few minutes north of downtown San Antonio. The area is full of shops, parks, restaurants, museums and homes that are part quaint, part modern and entirely worthy of an afternoon walk. With recent extension of San Antonio River, the world-famous River Walk is now 1.5 miles closer to Trinity. It won’t be long before the final portion of the Museum Reach extension is complete and the University becomes part a project that will revitalize the city and help new and old San Antonio reconnect seamlessly.

Bonus point: Trinity’s campus is modern and gorgeous in and of itself. See for yourself.

Fun fact: I happened to be a student tour guide at Trinity and know that the color of the brick that makes up the façade of all the buildings on campus is not just red – it’s Trinity Red.

Our venue had to be inside the social media loop. Trinity University contacted the organizers to be the official host of Tweetcamp San Antonio via – you guessed it – Twitter. You can follow @Trinity_U on Twitter and find several Trinity administrators and staff on Twitter as well. The University is actively making conscious efforts to learn from others, share thoughts and information, reach out to their constituents and participate in conversations via social media. WIN.

Our venue had to be free. Along with our other sponsors, Trinity University is to thank for helping us make this a free event open to the public.

So you see, your Tweetcamp San Antonio organizers are pretty high maintenance. Fortunately, Trinity has not only lived up to everything we expected from our venue – it has gone above and beyond.

And on a final note, Tweetcamp San Antonio going to college at Trinity University is an event in and of itself. Conferences are often held at hotels, meeting rooms and other venues that have no connection to the topic at hand. Ours is not the case.

Social media has gone mainstream. There is no doubt about that. And tools like Twitter are forcing industries and institutions to reinvent themselves. I only really started to figure out what I wanted in terms of a career when I got to college. If higher education institutions are not tuned into social media and introducing it in the classroom by this point, they are failing to educate students about the context of the world today or prepare them for what the world may look like in the near future. But higher education institutions willing to take the plunge into social media despite the lack of structure, constant state of flux and the predominance of application over theory are the ones that will turn out professionals that are truly prepared to take on our reinvented industries and inherit the new world.

In addition to listing them on our Sponsors page, TweetCampSA sponsors will also be featured on our blog so we can introduce you to the companies making TweetCampSA possible. Check them out and follow them on Twitter! TweetCampSA sponsors are the cutting-edge businesses in our community who understand, appreciate and make use of microblogging as part of their overall communications strategies.

VideoPublishing LogoIntroducing TweetCampSA Sponsor VideoPublishing.com (questions answered by Andrew Trickett, managing director of VideoPublishing.com, @videopublishing)

1. How do you use microblogging?

We try to use it to establish a “connection” with our customers and partners. We’re on Twitter, Facebook and WordPress.

2. How has microblogging changed your business?

We’re fairly new at it and need to get more active. But we have already seen that it develops a sense of “intimacy” with clients. The unexpected benefit is how excited employees get when they see us post. They love seeing the information and discussions too.

3. Who are your fave follows?

As a business, we like to follow @fredwilson. He is a venture capitalist who often gives fantastic insights on technology business…and often, life.

4. What’s your criteria for RTs?

We try to be somewhat selective, picking things that we think will be of use to a lot of our followers and *somewhat* related to our business, especially because we’re more of a B2B company than B2C.

5. Why are you sponsoring TweetCampSA?

Because we believe in the idea and we’re reaching the thought leaders of the San Antonio online industry

6. Give us an elevator pitch about your business.

We provide a hosted system for online videos that will be used for professional purposes, such as company promotions and higher-end filmmaking. We have a lot of important capabilities for video professionals that you won’t get with “the usual suspects.” We also do live video, streaming music, and can digitize old film.

Check them out and follow them on Twitter! TweetCampSA sponsors are the cutting-edge businesses in our community who understand, appreciate and make use of microblogging as part of their overall communications strategies.

Introducing TweetCampSA Sponsor San Antonio Express-News / mySA.com (questions answered by Eric Braun, director of digital media at MySA.com – @ebraun and @mySA).

1. How does the Express-News use microblogging?

We use it in several different ways. We push breaking news stories and weather forecasts out on a regular basis, but we don’t find that that’s really a huge traffic driver for us. It does drive a few extra clicks but it’s not a game-changer unless it’s something that takes off across networks. We really use it more as a CRM tool. It’s been much more about connecting with our readers and developing relationships with them. It provides both instant feedback and helps reporters develop sources. We also use Twitter as a way to aggregate sources of information quickly. During the swine flu outbreak we used CoverItLive to aggregate feeds from official and non-official sources including our medical bloggers.

2. How has microblogging changed your business?

Twitter has been the first application that has really grabbed the imagination of the newsroom. I don’t recall any social interaction tool that has been more widely accepted in newsrooms, not just at the Express-News but across the industry. Story comments and forums have always been something reporters have hesitated jumping into, but because the dialogue on twitter is more controlled, civil and ultimately useful, our staff has engaged with it in a big way. You can see by our staff list of twitter accounts how true that is.

3. What makes you follow some people/businesses over others?

I avoid twitterfeeds and people who promise to make me rich. I generally avoid a lot of rough language because we like to break tweets out in various places on the site.

4. Who would you like to see on Twitter who isn’t there already?

The rest of our staff who isn’t using twitter yet. I’d like to see more local politicians use it beyond campaign seasons. Maybe after this election they will. I’d also like to see more restaurants and clubs talking about specials and schedules. Half of the time when I think of someone I’d like to see on twitter, I search for them and they are there.

5. Why is the Express-News sponsoring TweetCampSA?

We’re always interested in learning best practices on how to use Twitter and other social media apps. We also desire to be a part of the social media community in San Antonio because it’s good for us as a business to be connected to people who are making a difference in our city. These things are hard to make happen without funding, so we’re happy to help make it work.

6. Give us an elevator pitch about the Express-News.

The E-N and mySA.com combined have third deepest market penetration of any newspaper in the country, we have the largest newsroom in town by a large margin and day in and day out provide relevant, important content on a variety of platforms. Not only do we provide a wealth of content day in and day out but we are also interested in helping our community reach broader audiences. Users can contribute blogs, tweets, photos, videos and stories to our site to tell their stories and deliver their messages. Of course, selling advertisements is another way we help our customers reach a broad audience and we have a lot of very bright sales people who can help plan an ad campaign on our sites and help devise a search engine marketing campaign.

TweetCampSA sponsors are the cutting-edge businesses in our community who understand, appreciate and make use of microblogging as part of their overall communications strategies.

Introducing TweetCampSA Sponsor Creative Noggin (@creativenoggin)!

1. How does Creative Noggin use microblogging?

Currently, we’re using it primarily to build our company and personal brands within the industry and community. We also teach our clients the benefits and how to utilize microblogging to build their own brands.

2. Has microblogging changed your business?

Oh, definitely. Prior to microblogging moving into the limelight, we were more of a traditional marketing and advertising agency. But since one of our big value propositions is helping our clients find ways to get better results with their marketing as well as finding ways to stretch their budgets, microblogging and social media have a much larger part of their overall marketing plans. Especially as we have learned the strong impact that inbound marketing/the internet can have on an organization’s success.

3. Who are Creative Noggin’s fave follows?

@chrisbrogan, @AmberCadabra, @alanweinkrantz, @writeontime, @colleenpence

4. What’s your criteria for RTs?

It just has to be information that is either unique, interesting, relevant or just darned funny!

5. Why is Creative Noggin sponsoring TweetCampSA?

We love helping to support something that will further educate interested folks in San Antonio about how awesome microblogging can be for business, keeping up with colleagues/friends, staying on top of what people in your industry are saying on a topic or even just staying social if you’re working from home. It’s an incredible resource. We continue to learn more and more about it every day and hope to help others do the same!

6. Give us an elevator pitch about Creative Noggin.

We’re a full service marketing agency that is 100% virtual. No offices = no overhead. That means that we can afford to hire the best and brightest talent in San Antonio for our clients and still charge less than traditional agencies. We’re a lean, mean branding machine. We use all of the tricks of the trade and more from incredible advertising, design, direct response, broadcast and PR to being masters of the internet, using a combo of SEO, awesome site design and social media tools to create phenomenal marketing plans for those we serve. And best of all, our business structure makes us extremely agile and able to move very quickly to help our clients.

Attendee Spotlight: 10 questions with Charlotte-Anne Lucas

Every Tuesday and Friday, we will feature a TweetCamp San Antonio attendee on the blog to give you an insight of the diverse group of people that have come together thanks to the micro-blogging services that are reinventing the way we do communications. Feel free to follow these people and get a head start on TweetCamp San Antonio. If you haven’t done so already, don’t forget to RSVP!

Introducing TweetCamp attendee @charlotteanne

charlotteanne

1. Who are you?

I’m a veteran journalist who left newspapers for the Web 10 years ago. I was in top management at two online news sites, TheStreet.com and MySanAntonio.com, when they became profitable. From 2006-2008 I taught digital journalism, Web design and publishing, multiplatform journalism, interviewing and the bedrock course, Journalism 102, at University of Nevada, Las Vegas. My students learned how to build and maintain their own blogs, built Web sites from tiny little pieces, interviewed people on the social network audio channel Utterz, use Skype video and iChat for international interviews, livestream interactive video on the social media channel, Kyte.tv, and used Twitter to complete the requirements of their final exam. Then I got laid off and came home to San Antonio.

2. What do you do?

My husband, Bill Waldrop, and I are partners in WilCharMedia.com. He’s also a journalist and he helped put the Express-News online in early 1996. We’re digital strategy consultants. We do Web publishing and design, we build social media networks. My role is Online Instigator. We’ll be starting an online news-wiki Web site later this year, but that’s another story!

3. Why social media?

Because we can. More importantly, because everyone can, and it is a two-way conversation. Thank goodness we’re no longer stuck with the one-way, top-down arrogance of old media (although not everyone in old media knows that!).

4. How do you use micro-blobbing services like Twitter for work/business?

I do an hour-long preso on Social Media for Journalists, and would be happy to roll that out during the Tweet Camp. It is longer than 140 characters and it evolves regularly 😉

5. How, if at all, do you use microbbling services for personal purposes?

The line between business and personal is a bit blurry these days, but that’s OK. My entire life is on the record.

6. Tell us a Twitter success story

One of my favorite students left school to work for Obama’s social networking squad. I taught him to Twitter, he Twittered for Obama, and look where that got us!

7. Twitter FAIL story? Lesson (s) learned?

On the first day my students were strutting their stuff and doing the first ever live-group Twitter of the Editor&Publisher EPPYconference in Vegas in May 2008, the Fail Whale weighed in for several hours. It was *very* frustrating.

8. [Cheating, three-part question] Your favorite Twitter follows? Why do you follow them? Have you ever met them?

I follow almost 1,200 people. I use TweetDeck and have several columns including one for all of the women I follow. Another column is My Faves (I have left out the locals on my list, fyi): @acarvin, @agahran, @alizasherman, @bonniegrrl, @breakingnewson, @carlmalamud, @craignewmark, @cshirky, @davewiner, @digitalsista, @dsearls, @gapingvoid, @gazamom, @garyobrien, @hrheingold, @jacklail, @jdp23, @kanter, @laughingsquid, @lisawilliams, @marshalk, @maryhodder, @mediamum, @myrnatheminx, @newmediajim, @niemanlab, @noxhanti, @olevia, @pistachio, @rachelnixon, @susanmernit, @TheWomensMuseum, @timoreilly, @tobydiva, @thirstyboots, @underoak, @vincrosbie, @westseattleblog, @womenwhotech, @yelvington
I learn so very much from them. Some make me think and some make me smile. It’s a great blend!

Of My 41 faves, I have met 11: @agahran, @craignewmark, @garyobrien, @jdp23, @rachelnixon, @tobydiva, @susanmernit, @thirstyboots, @myrnatheminx and @yelvington. I knew @kr8tr online for more than a year before I met him, and he’s in San Antonio!

9. Your Twitter pet peeve?

52% of Twitter users are women, yet so many Twitter shoutouts, lists of experts and RTs involve men. That’s part of why #women2follow is so important to me.

10. Any additional words of wisdom?

I joined Twitter right after it was introduced in 2007 at SXSW, but I didn’t fall in love with its potential and magic until later that year. I wrote a primer, Twitter 101 in March of 2008. That piece has gotten almost 2,000 views from all over the world. That’s pretty magic!

TweetCampSA is–of course–all about the microblogging. But it’s also about San Antonio and showcasing the best parts of what our beautiful city has to offer. San Antonio offers many unique and inviting spaces and TweetCampSA wants to find just the right one to call home.

We’re intrigued by the development taking place north of downtown on the expansion of San Antonio’s River Walk, particularly the area from Lexington Street to U.S. Highway 281, in the Museum Reach of the expansion. And that’s why we need your help! Do you know any specific details about the exciting development going on in that area of town? Do you have a friend involved with the project who has the inside scoop about what spaces will be hot, hot, hot (and cool, cool, cool–don’t forget, it will be summer!) and ready in time for TweetCampSA on July 18? We’re looking for a space to hold 100-150 people that provides Wi-Fi. Other than that, we’re pretty open. We’d love to host the first-ever TweetCampSA in a new, vibrant space that’s as invigorating and inventive as the concept of microblogging itself.

So give us a shout at tweetcampsa at gmail dot com if you have ideas to share. We’re open to any suggestions for a TweetCampSA location. After all this is your TweetCamp, San Antonio!

Introducing TweetCamp attendee @charnellpugsley

charnellpugsley

1. Who are you?

My name is Charnell Pugsley, from San Antonio, Texas.

2. What do you do?

I am the Community Evangelist for PEER 1, a Mother, and GrandMother – yes, these are “jobs” too. 🙂

3. Why social media?

Social Media plays a big part in my life both personally and professionally. It allows me to reach out to and speak to such a wide audience, to connect with such a variety of people. It fascinates me, educates me, and provides such great opportunities for so many things.

4. How do you use micro-blobbing services like Twitter for work/business?

PEER 1 and ServerBeach use Twitter to connect, share, listen, and learn. Customers, prospects, partners, industry experts, media, and competitors, are all on Twitter and looking to connect. Engaging with these different parties through micro-blogging is extremely efficient and highly rewarding. We have used Twitter to share tips and ideas, acknowledge happy customers, help unhappy customers, run fun promotions, communicate with media, and be generally thoughtful and transparent.

5. How, if at all, do you use microbbling services for personal purposes?

I use it personally to connect with people that share my interests, I use it for laughs, for information, and sometimes just to think aloud – which often returns some great advice from people!

6. Tell us a Twitter success story

Well that’s an easy one. It took me about a month to figure Twitter out. I signed up, used it for about a week and thought, “Who cares if I have to get up and pee at 2 a.m.?” or “Who cares that I had peanut butter on my toast??” This was nuts, I thought. So I dropped Twitter for about three weeks. I kept hearing about it everywhere so instead of posting or “tweeting”, I watched. I watched what people were “tweeting” and I noticed that they weren’t telling people what they were doing every minute of the day…they were connecting. So I tweeted here and there, people started responding. I started searching for keywords of interest, following people, and it was just a natural flow – I began connecting. The success? I’ve made numerous friends, connected with some old, many new, and I’ve learned so very much. That’s a success.

7. Twitter FAIL story? Lesson (s) learned?

Hm. I’ve tweeted something in my early days of Twitter that I should not have. I didn’t think anything of it because after reading it and realizing what I had said, I instantly clicked the little trash-can icon to delete it. Whew, I was safe. Bzzt, wrong answer. Why? Because good ol’ Twitter Search keeps EVERYTHING, whether you deleted it or not. Epic FAIL. So the lesson learned – never, EVER say anything online that you do not want the world to know. Common sense right? We would all like to think it anyway.

8. [Cheating, three-part question] Your favorite Twitter follows? Why do you follow them? Have you ever met them?

@ChrisBrogan – I haven’t had the opportunity to meet him…yet. He’s a real, down-to-earth person. He makes sure that he’s always personable and his tweets are always positive. He’s great with advice when it comes to Social Media – that’s his job right? 😉

@ JenWojcik, @0lli, @tophee, @jakematic, @RackerHacker, – some great friends I’ve made. Haven’t met them YET..except for @RackerHacker. I had the great opportunity of meeting him while attending my very first tweetup! All great people who make me laugh and often tweet interesting news/information.

9. Your Twitter pet peeve?

New followers who you follow back – only to have them DM with their spam and a URL.10. Any additional words of wisdom?

Tweet like there’s no tomorrow – someone, somewhere, will listen and 9 times out of 10 – engage.

Introducing TweetCamp attendee @timhan

timhan

1. Who are you?

Tim Hanson or @timhan

2. What do you do?

Public relations and marketing.

3. Why social media?

Because even though it’s a rough time to make transitions, social media is the direction in which the world is moving now.

4. How do you use micro-blobbing services like Twitter for work/business?

I use them to keep up-to-date on issues of the day, world developments, stocks and local information. I’m a complete information junky – micro-blogging services like Twitter fit my A.D.D/A.D.H.D.-ness perfectly

5. How, if at all, do you use microbbling services for personal purposes?

Not yet.

6. Tell us a Twitter success story

I was writing a presentation about social media and its impact on society and, right about that time, @andinarvaez posted a link about Birmingham City University offering a new Master’s program in social media, which I used and highlighted during my presentation.

7. Twitter FAIL story? Lesson (s) learned?

None yet. But knock on wood…

8. Any additional words of wisdom?

I heart 140 characters or less (I think we should make t-shirts that say that).

9. [Cheating, three-part question] Your favorite Twitter follows? Why do you follow them? Have you ever met them?
@WSJ (Wall Street Journal), @DrudgeReport, @NYT, @Nickdonnelly, @samlerma, @colleenpence, @meghanstabler, @andinarvaez

The news Twitterers keep me up-to-date. The others provide relevant information about local news, Twitter and other social media updates (I’m a neophyte to Twitter). And yes, I actually met several of them at the San Antonio Media/PR/Business tweetup.

10. Your Twitter pet peeve?

To the people who are pushy about their marketing pyramid schemes I say, “thanks, but no.” Also, the people who are always reminding you to vote or take action on something – if I didn’t do it the first time, chances are I’m not going to do it even if you tell me 20 times. Reminder…less is more.
