Social Media Marketing World 2013 – Top Tweets Day 1 #smmw13

Social Media Marketing World (Social Media Examiner‘s inaugural event) launched in style on Day 1, as 24 Awesome sessions showcased some of the world's best social media thought leaders and a passionate group of 1100 attendees.  

With any great conference comes a great Twitter Feed.  This post highlights some of the best tweets of Day 1 of the conference from a range of the sessions attended.  From Michael Stelzner's opening keynote about the state of Social Media Marketing in 2013 to the insprational closing keynote about how to “Fascinate” from Sally Hogshead, it was a day jam-packed full of takeways, great networking and fabulous content.

As Day 1 of Social Media Marketing World took off, so did the Twitter Feed.  The tweets being posted were stellar. The content was King, and its Queen was the tear-injucing belly laughs that came from speakers like Marcus Sheridan, Brian Carter and Sally Hogshead….as we sometimes tweeted through watery eyes and uncontrollable giggles.  Fast paced, the Twitter Feed was a 140-character-esque summary of the best bytes of the day. Unlike my usual posts, I am going to let the Tweets do the talking today. Enjoy!
