#CM1TO custom Twitter timeline

My first attempt at using the new custom Twitter timeline function on Tweetdeck. Custom timelines allow you to curate tweets about an event or topic. For my topic I chose the inaugural CM1 Community Managers’ conference that took place today in Toronto.

Check it out here.

First impression: I don’t love it. You can’t change the order of the tweets and so I had some trouble trying to organize tweets about the all-day event, which had several speakers.

You also can’t offer any background, context or commentary such as the text boxes that are available in Storify.

But it’s a good option to have out there.
