We print-tweeted the Online News Association conference

We made some tweets for you.

You may have dipped into the fast-moving stream of #ONA12 tweets that came out of the Online News Association conference in San Francisco over the weekend. We wanted to mix things up a little, asking attendees to create physical tweets by jotting down thoughts, drawings, overheards, and other moments from the conference — then tweeting your #IRLtweets creations.

Think of it as a slow tweet movement.

Many thanks to those of you who joined in, and to everyone at ONA for getting us thinking. Here’s a sampling of what we all made:


We also really dug some of the sketched notes that came out of the conference. Check out some from Susie Cagle:

Plus some of Dan Carino’s sketches of the conference:

As well as a few of Graham Clark’s session notes:

What did we miss? We’d love to add your #IRLtweets from ONA to this collection.

When people talk about explanatory journalism, the focus is on new players like Vox and FiveThirtyEight, or on giants like the Times and the Post. But can connecting the dots trickle down to the local level?
