I pride myself on knowing the latest about the AV industry. Since joining Twitter, I’ve found it easier than ever to stay on top of the latest AV industry news.
We’ve all heard the jokes about the overuse of hashtags online, but there are still hashtags that help bring people together to share knowledge and connect. One of the hashtags that I frequently use is #AVTweeps, representing the influential people in the AV world.
Digital Signage Today
I follow Digital Signage Today because they cover pretty much any digital signage application that you can think of, as well as the people, trends, and events associated with them.
Chris Neto, a pro audiovisual consultant at AV Helpdesk, provides news stories, informative videos, and helpful blogs in his Twitter feed. I follow him and get expert tips and advice for him, as well as many other sources that he retweets (RTs) and includes in his “The #AVTweeps Today” daily newsletter.
Any AV integrator or installer in the industry should keep up with Commercial Integrator. Between tweeting new products, news, white papers, webinars, and fun photos, their Twitter feed will keep your feed filled with relevant information. They often tag the accounts of other #AVTweeps you can connect with.
I follow Julie Jacobson, editor and co-founder at CE Pro, because her Twitter feed showcases her fun personality and it also keeps me informed of the latest trends in the electronics world. She also tags the companies making the news, so you can learn more about them in one place.
