Imagine having a conversation with your peers, colleagues and friends in short 140-character bursts. Not possible you say? Well imagine these people are not even in front of you but on the other side of the world, in a different time zone?
In the world before telephones or internet, this would have seemed a far-fetched fantasy.
Today, however, Twitter allows users to communicate in exactly this way; with short 140-character messages called ‘tweets’.
A particularly exciting and growing area of the Twitter platform is Twitter chat, which is essentially a live Twitter event, focused around a particular topic.
Joining a Twitter chat is a great way to engage with a community, increase your product brand’s social visibility, and connect with an audience in a new way.
Metacoda was recently invited to participate in the SAS France led Twitter #SASchat on the impact of Internet of Things on the Analytics Administrator. Here a number of experts in the community weighed in with their thoughts and experiences via the Q&A, and discussed and shared their resources. To give you an idea of what the event was like, check out the Twitter chat summary below.
For Metacoda, it’s encouraging to see organizations recognising the key role of the SAS administrator and the importance of having a secure SAS platform. Please contact us if you’d like to learn more about how we can help you keep your SAS platform secure.
