Twitter Data Science & Machine Learning 
hashtag #twitterdsml
August 22nd 

I finally gave in and started using it  --
so it only seemed natural to be at Twitters new headquarters,  playing kornhole on the rooftop.

As much as people at this event were tweeting about Twitter, I was in fact listening to the keynote speakers. With a room full of engineers they compared the power behind data to be like oxygen (vital and abundant), with promises of having the ability to build up from micro-level data to answer macro-level questions.  Amongst this crowd, I met Adam Moore who has over seven thousand followers on Twitter.  Which turns out to be more followers than all of the keynote speakers, combined. I know this because I looked him up, and also came across a tweet that he had posted while at the event.
