Crisis Publications Twitter — Snurb, 12 July 2011

I’m pushing my luck by heading down to Melbourne again tomorrow – hopefully without being held up by ash clouds, pilot strikes, or any other unforeseen disruptions, this time. I’m there to speak at the Emergence Management Conference, to present (again) on our research into the use of Twitter in particular and social media more generally during the recent Queensland floods and Christchurch earthquake(s). Looking forward to it!

Regular visitors to the blog might not find all that much new information in my presentation, compared to what we’ve already published here in the past. But nonetheless, here it is (audio to come later, hopefully now online, too):
