I am at WebmasterWorld’s Pubcon, and instead of taking notes just for me, I live Twittered everything I learned. If you don’t follow me on Twitter here are the highlights, in Twitter format.

Also interesting to note, Twitter was the dominant theme of the conference from the opening keynote featuring internet entrepreneur Guy Kawasaki and the nicest guy on Twitter Chris Brogan through to my talk on ‘The Intersection of Search and Social’.

Search.Twitter.com is a game changer. Faster than Google which takes 1-2 days to index @JayBerkowitz

@DellOutlet on Twitter has done over $1,000,000 in business and over 154,000 followers in 1.5 years

A number of people are using Twitter to search for product information instead of Google. They ask their followers what car to buy what movie to go to @JayBerkowitz

The ultimate form of flattery is how often people retweet your posts I check retweetthis.com all the time @guykawasaki

If you want to be retweeted keep tweets to 120 characters leave room for Rt message @ggroovin
