Like most international education conferences that I’m unable to attend I followed and engaged with the conference and attendees via the conference hashtag from Chicago as I find this to be a valuable exercise on many levels. What was great about AIEC 2016 this year is that the conference (I presume) teamed up with Tweet Binder and they provided some very informative Twitter metrics about the conference.
Following are screen shots (click on photos to enlarge) I took of some of the most interesting metrics and two include how well my #aiec2016 engagement fared compared to others. I’m particularly proud to be ranked 2nd as a contributor with the highest impact at 869,033 Impacts (I was also the 5th most active and second in terms of retweets). The contributor with the greatest impact was IDP Database (@IDPDRIE) at 2,154,439 Impacts and the third highest ranked contributor was The PIE News (@ThePIENews) with 509,139 Impacts. I’m in good company!
