Live-Tweeting FTC Workshops
In 2011, the FTC began to live-tweet workshops hosted by the Commission. The FTC will announce a hashtag when it plans to live-tweet a workshop at least a couple of days in advance (usually in the agenda press release). Participants can follow the workshop on Twitter and submit questions to panelists.
For more information about past and upcoming conferences and workshops, check out the FTC workshops page.
