Anthony and I had a great time at the National American Planning Association conference talking to planners about why more and more planning projects are using Twitter as a public involvement tool. Twitter use at the APA conference was phenomenal with over 1,000 tweets using the conference hashtag #apa2010! A big thank you to the APA for setting Cubit up with an amazing booth and for being supportive of Twitter use during the conference!

Anthony designed this Twitter Cheatsheet for newbie tweeps (translation: people new to Twitter) based on questions at the American Planning Association's 2010 conference in New Orleans.

I used a tool called Archivest to export all of the APA2010 tweets and uploaded them here: List of Planning Tweets from the APA’s 2010 Conference. If anyone is interested in how I was able to convert these tweets from text to useful data, leave me a comment below, and I'll write a quick blog post about how to export tweets using Archivest and Excel.

So what did I forget? There was a lot of tweeting going on at the conference. Leave me a comment if I left something out!
