At ILM 2014: The Day 1 Tweetrospective

 

Some of the core themes today on Day 1 at Leading in Local: Interactive Local Media in San Francisco were evident in the even’t robust Twitter feed. The sharing economy (and its cousin the “1099 economy”), the growth of video, the emergence of native and programmatic, and the urgency to transform were all front and center.

Here is a sample of some of the top Day 1 tweets.
