It was the #SMW (Social Media Week) event to be at this week. PR agency NKPR hosted ‘TRUTH DARE DOUBLE DARE PROMISE TO RETWEET’ and so SheDoestheCity was there to enjoy Skyy Vodka cocktails, Coronitas, Facebook and Twitter-topped cupcakes.
It wasn’t just icing and booze, although that is usually enough to get us to mobilize anywhere, there was also a speaking panel and a live tweet board. Behind the mic was Mike Farrell, SVP Research & Strategic Insights for Conversion, Oscar winner Paul Haggis, whose name has been viral all week regarding his dramatic Scientology slam-down, but who took pride in telling us how social media has helped spread awareness for his charity Artists for Peace and Justice, Toro’s Editor-in-Chief William Morassutti, and of course the lovely Natasha Koifman, or the N and K in NKPR. Wise words were spoken, texted, tweeted, twisted, photographed and spinned upside down.
Sooooo, In honor of Social Media Week Toronto, the rest of this post will be in the form of a Twitter convo between SheDoestheCity contributors Louisa Cohen and Becca Lemire:
