Oliver Snoddy, the Head of Planning at Twitter UK, was the keynote speaker at SES London on Wednesday, 20 Feb. (In his Twitter profile, Snoddy describes himself as the “Wannabe love child of Shane McConkey, Haruki Murakami and Jonny Greenwood.”)
Although Search Engine Watch could provide traditional news coverage of his remarks, it seems more appropriate to use Tweets from the conference to illustrate Snoddy’s point that “Twitter is the shortest distance between you and what interests you most.”
