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:

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