This is a question Training courses, seminars and conferences

Twitter feeds at conferences.
I'm not on Twitter, but I do like registering a Twitter account if I'm at a conference with a hashtag and a live Twitter feed. The game is "Can you get people in the room tweeting about something unrelated, on this hashtag?".

I successfully managed to hijack the Twitter feed at a social media conference/awards night into people talking about owls.

Was at a conference last week
...and the hashtag managed to trend. Within minutes, the mahoosive Twitter screen in the hall filled to the brim with porn. Happy days.

I'm amazed this doesn't happen more often.
I decided I should go for something that wouldn't get me fired if anyone found out it was me. Owls seemed a good option.

Pretty much
Sorry I'm not as exciting and interesting as you. Bet you drive a Honda Accord.

Please could you give me some advice about how I can become as popular and witty as you?
