The Best Tweets from FUSE: The Convergence of Technology & Media
We weren't surprised on Monday when the hashtag #2016FUSE blew up on the Twitterverse. We had just kicked off FUSE: The Convergence of Technology & Media, a tech summit for leaders in media, and we knew the conference sessions would ignite the interests of our social-savvy audience. Over the course of the two and a half day conference, technology experts dove into topics like artificial intelligence, augmented reality, and mobile, discussing how these disruptive forces are shaping the publishing industry. Throughout the event attendees tweeted out some of their biggest takeaways and favorite moments.
In an effort to disseminate these insights, we'd like to share some of the best tweets from FUSE 2016.
