The twittersphere was also abuzz with updates during the two day conference. Highlights below:

@keefythehipster: Great quote: Content is king. Distribution is queen and she wears the pants via @JamshedWadia

@eskimon: Beware of merely ‘renting’ an audience – build communities that you can nurture on your own terms ~ @JamshedWadia

@malaby: CMO: now Chief Moments Officer? Audience questions at Twitter brand session.

@manojaravind: What drives multiple-channel marketing- the message or the medium?

@ladyextel: How can one generate value in content? Connect real user issues (information, entertainment) with brand expertise for the sweet spot.

@kareenk: People funding the tool, using the tools & using the reports from the tool are completely different and they don’t speak to each other.

@verydeepsleep: Bill Hunt: If more than 50 percent of people come to your homepage and then go to site search, you have bad navigation.

@anoirnan: Analytics without insights is useless JABON. My mantra of late, good to see it on a slide pic.twitter.com/2WWNcpwi4y

@DamienCummings: Just groovin’ to Intel’s Harlem Shake. @JamshedWadia presenting great insights into social & content.

@notsogeek:rule #3 forget cute cats and celebs, focus on personal triumphs on video ad (pugs might work better, like the ones in @flickr’s ad)!

@jermyntoh: MYTH: the viral video does not exist. Gangnam style was a very carefully orchestrated piece of success – Phil Townend.

@s_abry:”I talk about the brand not because I love the brand but because I love my people” Rudratej Singh

@9VSKA: “@shanobyl: Poor user experience on mobile sites affects SERP rankings” And in the case of SIA’s, their full web site version too!

@siimulation: 81 percent expect retailers to utilise technology to improve in-store shopping experiences.

@doughperis: Three trends in digital: mobile, use of data & insights, and always on. Good insights, thanks @TPeltoniemi

@darren_yan:Digital marketers need more ROI wins than experiments to win the hearts from the boardroom to get future funding.

@jermyntoh: love this! RT @adalinelau: “We don’t have 30s to be interrupted, but we have 30 mins to hear a great story”@Rudratej

@shanobyl: Split testing essentials: ease of implementation, strong insight, budget optimization.

@keizng: Exhilaration is the top trigger for viral videos pic.twitter.com/gbx1pdZGb4

@bansalvikram: Lesson from #McDonald’s ‘Hello Kitty’ and Singpost ‘Black Friday’ example….plan ecommerce infastructure to cover spikes.
