Twitter at the #NGS2012 Family History Conference

Throughout the National Genealogical Society’s 2012 Family History Conference in Cincinnati there were dozens and dozens of people actively tweeting from the event.

These tweeting attendees and speakers provided a window into the event for the folks who were not able to attend.

When you view the Tweets as a “network map” you can see how intertwined the Tweeting community became over the course of the event.
