Objectives: During the 2010 Annual Meeting of the Medical Library Association, in addition to the conference blog with official bloggers, there was an active Twitter stream using the hashtag #mla2010. Lorcan Dempsey has coined the term “amplified conference” to refer to conferences which employ social media and networking tools (Twitter, Facebook, Flickr, etc.) to communicate conference content. This poster presents an overview of the #mla2010 Tweets as a social and intellectual history of the meeting.
