Social media newbies are also invited to attend Twitter 101 – a simple, hands-on, beginner’s crash course to life in the Twitterverse lead by EACVB Director of Marketing Krisilee Murphy and DNA Managing Director Jason Pawlowski. Twitter 101 begins at 5:30 pm at the DNA office at 2 Douglas Avenue inside the Elgin Tower Building.
