We’re delighted that our Breaking News Network is one of the event sponsors of 140 | The Twitter Conference in Los Angeles on September 22-23. The Parnassus Group (we like this friendly group a lot)  has lined up a Hollywood-inspired roster of speakers that should provide a lot of personality for a tech conference.

We enjoyed the first 140 in Mountain View last May, but thought the crowd was too social-media-centric. I noted that in a room of 300, only two of us represented real estate. We want to see all kinds of industry and small business participating at 140. Twitter and Twitter-based applications offer practical solutions to business development, and it’s usually the people in business – real estate, publishing, retail, entertainment, hospitality, advertising to name a few – who figure this out.

As event sponsors, we’re offering a discount code for registration at 140: type in 140LAPK. Be sure to get registered by September 6, after that the price jumps.
