from Corporate Board Member
During Corporate Board Member’s 2012 compensation-focused conference, Compensation Strategies to Build Shareholder Value, we tweeted tidbits about the panels, and engaged in conversation with our Twitter followers. If you aren’t a Twitter user, here’s what you need to know to understand these tweets:
- Tweets may only be 140 characters or less, so don’t expect to see full sentences.
- Phrases beginning with “#” are topic hashtags, utilized to allow Twitter users to focus on specific topics.
- Phrases beginning with an “@” are Twitter users’ names.
- “RT” means “re-tweet,” used when we re-post another Twitter user’s tweet.
