Hi all,

well, port80 is just about on us and I thought I’d confirm the Twitter (or Instagram) hashtag on the day.


(I didn’t go for the obvious port80 as that seemed to be in small scale use in Sydney and didn’t want to rudely trample on it).

If you have a question for one of the speakers during the day and are too shy to put your hand up and warble into the travelling mic, then please send a reply to the @port80events account with perhaps “Q.” on the front of your question (to make it more obvious to our weary eyes). Include the hashtag if you want to give greater visiblity of course.

Not swamping your regular followers

Some of your followers may not want to hear about your #p80N tweets (those fools!!). In which case you may wish to do the following:

If you prefix your #p80N tweet with @chatonly, then your regular followers will be spared the tweet. @chatonly was set up for this specific, muting, follower friendly, twitter chat reason (more here).

(You may think you can achieve this my mentioning the @port80Events account but, obviously, we’d rather not see the tweet as a mention to us unless it’s a question or you specifically need something from us etc).

See you Friday!


p.s. oh! don’t forget to checkin on 4SQ as well, port80 has been added.

p.p.s. if you have a smart phone, download the eventbrite app as it can help check you in quicker.
