Join the #ccon Conversation!
CatalystCon is a conference created to inspire exceptional conversations about sexuality. We want to make it easier for attendees (and those who are unable to be there in person) to continue those conversations by using hashtag #ccon on Twitter and following @CatalystCon for updates throughout the weekend.
We have also created individual hashtags for each session, keynote, workshop and special event to help faciliate these conversations. Our social media team will once again be rounding up all of the best tweets and using Storify to curate them and tell the story of CatalystCon. But without all of you who live tweet the conference, there would be no stories to tell here! So keep the conversation going...
Find more info about the hashtags here. (They will also be available in your conference program.)
Thank you for reading! See you in a few weeks!
