1st Twitt-Asia Meeting

I Encuentro Twitt-Asia - IMG2

The 1st Twitt-Asia Meeting, promoted from the programme 'Asia Geek' of Casa Asia and right before the Manga Room, will gather well known experts of the nano-blogosphere to analyse the Twitter phenomenon.

Twitter is a microblogging site where you can share thoughts and states of mind with friends and followers or to follow famous people day by day. The dissemination power of information and its immediateness are such that they have turned Twitter into a phenomenon of global interactions and into one of the most spread social networks of the present. It is on the spotlight of media, companies, individuals and even governments. Due to this turn in its initial conception, from "what are you doing" to "what is happening", has become the main tool of commentators of immediateness.

The 1st Twitt-Asia Meeting, promoted from the programme 'Asia Geek' of Casa Asia and right before the Manga Room, will gather well known experts of the nano-blogosphere to analyse the Twitter phenomenon. Moreover, we include Antonio Delgado, blogger and co-organiser of the 1st Twitt-Tokyo', which will share the experience of the meeting in Tokyo and will introduce the topic of social networks in Asia. Next, Hèctor García (Kirai), writer, blogger and head engineer of Twitter-Japan, will approach the world of Internet in Japan, about his everyday work in Twitter; about how Twitter is used by the Japanese and about its intensive use in Japan, where it is already one of the 10 sites of Internet most used in the country.

Subsequently, Óscar Valiente, Director of Norma Editorial, will present Kirai's last book, called "Momentos" and the author will therefore display the creation of his new work. After the lecture, there will be time to chat with the speakers and Twitter fans, which will end with networking among wine, champagne and nuts after the session.

This event is led by Javier Castañeda, Director of Technology and Cyberculture of Casa Asia.
